The Federation of Forrester is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 492 million Forresterians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The strong Forresterian economy, worth 22.8 trillion Guineas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 46,437 Guineas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 219,166 per year while the poor average 5,833, a ratio of 37.6 to 1.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Forrester's national animal is the Bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Forrester is ranked 149,833rd in the world and 337th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
