The Liberal Paradise of The Fortem is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jay Coleman with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 1.141 billion Fortemians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cradlion. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fortemian economy, worth 122 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,940 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fortemians seem to be catching more chills, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, and people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Fortem's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Various religions.

The Fortem is ranked 110,956th in the world and 743rd in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 61.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
