Location: Appalcadia

Regional Influence: Handshaker


The Kingdom of Fharon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lady Maria with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.52 billion Yharnamites 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 enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yharnam. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Fharonian economy, worth 45.6 trillion Blood Echoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 30,030 Blood Echoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school bands practice by moonlight, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, and factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fharon's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Healing Church.

Fharon is ranked 58,919th in the world and 6th in Appalcadia for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,341.94 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
