World Census descriptionEdit
The Land of Farlian is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Farlian The Great with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 2.401 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Farlian City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A large private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, military spending is on the increase, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Farlian's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Farlian.
Farlian is ranked 330th in the region and 18,394th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry.
