The Red Lucky Holy Planet of Fauxia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Santa Claus with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.882 billion Fauxians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Fauxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,900 trillion gold bar asteroids a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 213,959 gold bar asteroids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The study of medicine is popular throughout Fauxia, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fauxia's national animal is the moon vampire cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyonnism.

Fauxia is ranked 5,599th in the world and 154th in the Rejected Realms for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 8,211.23 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
