The Perso-Babylonian Empire of Furonistan is a massive, pleasant nation, ruled by Kurush XIII with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.757 billion Furonistanis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The strong Furonistani economy, worth 100 trillion Darics a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 57,395 Darics, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 250,349 per year while the poor average 8,316, a ratio of 30.1 to 1.

Healthcare funding has been cut, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, citizens must pay to enjoy Furonistan's pristine beaches, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Furonistan's national animal is the Lamassu, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Yarsanism.

Furonistan is ranked 141,992nd in the world and 21st in Union of Liberal Nations for Nicest Citizens, with 0.92 Average Smiles Per Day.
