The Federated Alliance of Free Pacific States is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Christopher Arctoris with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 18.596 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 55%, 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.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues. 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 10th in The East Pacific and 520th in the world for Best Weather, with 603 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
