The United Democratic States of Fascist Democracy is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Black with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.198 billion Democracians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oakwood. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Democratic economy, worth a remarkable 1,160 trillion Federal Units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 276,335 Federal Units, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 804,943 per year while the poor average 75,003, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Politicians look weirdly alike, the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, and citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fascist Democracy's national animal is the fanged porcupine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Just Monika.

Fascist Democracy is ranked 155,090th in the world and 7,973rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -29.33 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
