The Federated Alliance of Free Pacific States is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Christopher Arctoris with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 18.559 billion Free Pacificans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberty City. The average income tax rate is 51%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

New funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Free Pacific States's national animal is the Whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Federate Credit.

Free Pacific States is ranked 237th in The East Pacific and 8,297th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 8 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
