The Socialist Republic of Folenz is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Comrade Catullus Industrius with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 5.566 billion Folenzians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Magnus et Pulcher. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Folenzian economy, worth 702 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 126,257 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, pregnant women get a lot of evil glares from fellow passengers when leaving the country, praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, and foreign militias and child smuggling rings will always love Comrade Catullus Industrius. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Folenz's national animal is the Dachshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is socialist realism.

Folenz is ranked 3,837th in the world and 241st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.34 on the Human Development Index.
