The Federation of The Three States of Fortuna is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by High Commander Lyone with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.573 billion Fortunans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Destino. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Fortunan economy, worth a remarkable 4,362 trillion Fortunes 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 412,649 Fortunes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, and children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Three States of Fortuna's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Clarityism.

The Three States of Fortuna is ranked 170th in the world and 3rd in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 805.43 Bank.
