The Incorporated States of Favored is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mason with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.519 billion Favoredians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tartarus. The average income tax rate is 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Favoredian economy, worth 187 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. 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 123,161 stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, nations that kill a Favoredian can expect a strongly worded letter, and a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 141,193rd in the world and 6,129th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -67 on the Rand Index.
