The Tumultuous State of Fraisse is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Simon Bézin with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.526 billion Fraissians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Clayfeild. The average income tax rate is 64.7%.

The very strong Fraissian economy, worth 748 trillion Frits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 99,512 Frits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Fraisse's national animal is the Woodpecker, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fraisse is ranked 2nd in Logic and 78,829th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 3 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
