LeaderMarcus Al-Fariah


The Sultanate of Faria Thew is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Marcus Al-Fariah with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.274 billion Faria Thewians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kabire. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Faria Thewian economy, worth 443 trillion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 194,983 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Moonshine has made a resurgence, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Faria Thew's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Farianism.

Faria Thew is ranked 8,525th in the world and 242nd in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.13 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
