The Military Dictatorship of Fortunadia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Scalabrini with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.29 billion Fortunadians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buenos Mares. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fortunadian economy, worth 858 trillion Fortunadian Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 260,816 Fortunadian Pesos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 787,156 per year while the poor average 67,330, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, safe drinking water is considered a luxury, and students who refuse to pray are expelled from school. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fortunadia's national animal is the Giant Tuna, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Fortunadia is ranked 10,759th in the world and 13th in Sonindia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5,743.2 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
