The Winking Lizard of Fizban is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Efernaldred Koran Collins with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.543 billion Fizbans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankh-Morpork. The average income tax rate is 66.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Fizbanian economy, worth 815 trillion septums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 179,504 septums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, strange men lingering in offices distributing television sets is a basis for a system of government, and trespassers entering Efernaldred Koran Collins's office are immediately vaporized. Crime is totally unknown. Fizban's national animal is the Gorfursyat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Thaumaturgy.

Fizban is ranked 81,358th in the world and 4,240th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 64.39 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
