The Empire of Fahrul is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 626 million Fahrulians 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strine. The average income tax rate is 66.1%.

The Fahrulian economy, worth 39.5 trillion Soliduses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 63,099 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts, the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and young girls often attend the same schools as their children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fahrul's national animal is the Pink Fairy Armadillo, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fahrul is ranked 152,473rd in the world and 6,009th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 3.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
