The Military Dictatorship of Fortunadia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Scalabrini with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.844 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, 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 55.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Fortunadian economy, worth 705 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 247,990 Fortunadian Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Heterosexuality is considered positive proof of fitness to parent, savvy nightclub-goers know that structurally unsound venues sell the cheapest drinks, the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', and supervisors in Fortunadia commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 29,389th in the world and 42nd in Sonindia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 72.22 on the Rand Index.
