The Federation of Fortye is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 228 million Fortyeans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 21.3%.

The strong Fortyean economy, worth 15.7 trillion Figs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,853 Figs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity, the new Fox Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, and the Foxes of Fortye are surprisingly well-adjusted. Crime is totally unknown. Fortye's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fortye is ranked 193,925th in the world and 3,576th in the South Pacific for Largest Populations, with 228 million Capita.
