The Serene Empire of Forktoon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Katherine Of Forkadia I with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.61 billion Forktoonians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Forksland. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Forktoonian economy, worth 235 trillion Electronic Fork Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 146,120 Electronic Fork Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Racehorses move a lot slower these days, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, the arms industry has been shut down in a surge of pacifism, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Forktoon's national animal is the Fork, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult Of Forks.

Forktoon is ranked 4,920th in the world and 164th in The East Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 151.4 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
