Regional Influence: Dealmaker
The Fearless Flying Frog Brigade of Fratt Armed Forces is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 7.137 billion love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and Defence are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.
Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, the people of Fratt Armed Forces are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, the new hit series "Fratt Armed Forces's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fratt Armed Forces's national animal is the guerrilla fighter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the francolino.
