The Holy Empire of FairyHomeland is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 458 million FairyHomelandians 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 enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped FairyHomelandian economy, worth 17.2 trillion Golds 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 Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 37,527 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pollsters are out of a job as elections have been cancelled, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, and the government spends millions of Golds every year prosecuting spammers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FairyHomeland's national animal is the Mermaid, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

FairyHomeland is ranked 165,193rd in the world and 173rd in Resuscitation for Most Developed, scoring 51.05 on the Human Development Index.
