The Democratic Socialist Union of Poulton-with-Fearnhead is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kiril Mikhailov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.446 billion Varcarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dheaxeev. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Poulton-with-Fearnheadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,212 trillion Færns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 234,196 Færns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poulton-with-Fearnhead's national animal is the Ghost, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Poulton-with-Fearnhead is ranked 244,656th in the world and 736th in Europeia for Most Armed, with 0.1 Weapons Per Person.
