The Federation of Fractiminus is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Fash Mouth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.089 billion Fractiminians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frown Town. The average income tax rate is 54.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Fractiminish economy, worth 310 trillion frowns 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. 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 75,836 frowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", God took rock and roll from you, took rock and roll from everyone, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Fractiminus's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Sadness.

Fractiminus is ranked 250,190th in the world and 427th in Refugia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -10.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
