The Ríocht of The Foraois is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 702 million Battanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Car Swenyrn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Battanic economy, worth 76.7 trillion Denars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,189 Denars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 570,685 per year while the poor average 11,226, a ratio of 50.8 to 1.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, it is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Foraois's national animal is the Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Foraois is ranked 84,967th in the world and 2,631st in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,515.38 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
