The Forever Rejected Nation of Fauxia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.351 billion Fauxians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Fauxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,729 trillion gold bars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 207,130 gold bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Santa Claus's most personal functions, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Fauxians, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fauxia's national animal is the vampire, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyonnism.

Fauxia is ranked 5,087th in the world and 118th in the Rejected Realms for Healthiest Citizens, with 18.33 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
