“Going out of business”
Regional Influence: Superpower
Location: United Republic of Nations
The Tumultuous State of Fraisse is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Simon Bézin with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.947 billion Fraissians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Clayfeild. The average income tax rate is 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Soda Sales.
Discarded pennies litter the streets, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and a government program is underway to revitalize Fraisse's beaches. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Fraisse's national animal is the Woodpecker, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Frit.
