The Perso-Babylonian Empire of Furonistan is a massive, pleasant nation, ruled by Kurush XIII with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.728 billion Furonistanis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Industry receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The Furonistani economy, worth 86.2 trillion Darics a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 49,877 Darics, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 221,190 per year while the poor average 7,019, a ratio of 31.5 to 1.

Pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, religious bigotry is not allowed but bigotry against theism is encouraged, fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, and women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Furonistan's national animal is the Lamassu, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Babylonian religion.

Furonistan is ranked 153,249th in the world and 28th in Union of Liberal Nations for Most Cultured, scoring 57 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
