The Nation of Fauxia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Me with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.895 billion Fauxians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Fauxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,608 trillion bribes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 203,716 bribes, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Torture is illegal, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fauxia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyonnism.

Fauxia is ranked 191,476th in the world and 5,431st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
