The Empire of Forostar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Becca with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 39.311 billion Forostarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gorkville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Forostarian economy, worth a remarkable 9,691 trillion kopecs a year, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 246,542 kopecs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 993,596 per year while the poor average 40,886, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, where there's smoke there's the Forostarian Forestry Department, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, and Forostar recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Forostar's national animal is the Bun Bun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wiccan.

Forostar is ranked 917th in the world and 1st in SWG for Largest Black Market, with 3,148 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
