The Powerhouse State of Fdryden is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Carla Higgins with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, vat-grown people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.893 billion Fdrydenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burford. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Fdrydenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,403 trillion Cactis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 407,777 Cactis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, and police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints. Crime is totally unknown. Fdryden's national animal is the Walleye, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fdryden is ranked 854th in the world and 1st in Union of Democrats for Largest Black Market, with 3,087 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
