The Democratic Socialist Union of Poulton-with-Fearnhead is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Premier Hëmac Votschov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 7.972 billion Varcarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dheaxeev. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Poulton-with-Fearnheadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,778 trillion Færns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 223,041 Færns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, Varcarians are wondering where have all the flowers gone, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poulton-with-Fearnhead's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Poulton-with-Fearnhead is ranked 131,485th in the world and 621st in Europeia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -1.41 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
