The R3ichsr3publik of Fortisbellator is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pr3sid3nt Thomas Lloyd with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.217 billion Fortisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of M3nsch3nplatz. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fortisian economy, worth 149 trillion 3ast3rn Obilj3s 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. 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 122,600 3ast3rn Obilj3s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', in M3nsch3nplatz subways and skyways roar at all hours (Fortisbellator has found 1 easter egg), the ingredients list for most food products covers the entire surface of the packaging, and the freedom to be free is always just out of reach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fortisbellator's national animal is the black 3agl3, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Prussianism.

Fortisbellator is ranked 16,991st in the world and 39th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Developed, scoring 86.24 on the Human Development Index.
