The Armed Republic of Fickastan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by John Thompson with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.285 billion Fickastanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fickastania. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Fickastanian economy, worth 215 trillion Fickalmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,341 Fickalmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, pocket dialling is a criminal offence, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Chicken. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fickastan's national animal is the Chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fickastan is ranked 188,800th in the world and 7,698th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -6.03 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
