The Federation of TheFederations is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 630 million TheFederationsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant TheFederationsian economy, worth 5.77 trillion Shmekles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 9,159 Shmekles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, Mr Happy's Funland has just been named TheFederations's new capital, and a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TheFederations's national animal is the Me, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

TheFederations is ranked 200,873rd in the world and 7,833rd in Balder for Highest Poor Incomes, with 9,005.42 Standard Monetary Units.
