The Incorporated States of Favored is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Mason with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.177 billion Favoredians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tartarus. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Favoredian economy, worth 894 trillion stones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 124,621 stones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation won three wars against Brancaland this weekend, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, parking lots are littered with coffee cups and doughnut crumbs, and the countryside is shrouded by wind farms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Favored's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Favored is ranked 33,422nd in the world and 748th in The East Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.72 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
