The Red Lucky Holy Planet of Fauxia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Santa Claus with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.13 billion Fauxians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt 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 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Fauxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,960 trillion gold bar asteroids a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 214,735 gold bar asteroids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, on-duty Air Fauxia flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, drunk leprechauns pelt countryside ramblers with gold coins (Fauxia has found 12 easter eggs), and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fauxia's national animal is the moon vampire cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyonnism.

Fauxia is ranked 3,020th in the world and 84th in the Rejected Realms for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,261.28 Tourists Per Hour.
