The Federated Alliance of Free Pacific States is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Christopher Arctoris with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.327 billion, 559 million of whom are zombies, 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 59%, 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.

Religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and all tariffs have been abolished. 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 3,859th in The East Pacific and 113,031st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Free Pacific States is currently considering its options.
