The Taylor Swift of Folkmore is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory vegetarianism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 743 million folkmoreans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of wonderland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.5%.

The very strong Folkmorean economy, worth 57.8 trillion hoaxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 77,794 hoaxes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 231,651 per year while the poor average 20,469, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Some say Leader has gone MAD after authorizing the development of apocalyptic biological weapons, the dartboard at the Folkmorean Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Leader's face, foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Folkmore's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Folkmore is ranked 66,920th in the world and 445th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Drug Use, scoring 88 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
