The Socialist Republic of Folenz is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Comrade Catullus Industrius with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 5.566 billion Folenzians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Magnus et Pulcher. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Folenzian economy, worth 702 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 126,145 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Many friends and relatives of Comrade Catullus Industrius have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, military spending recently hit a new high, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and Folenz isn't what it used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Folenz's national animal is the Dachshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is socialist realism.

Folenz is ranked 3,858th in the world and 243rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.31 on the Human Development Index.
