The Dictatorship of Fraguale Cothe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alyssa Ong with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.774 billion Fraguale Cotheans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Further Math. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Fraguale Cothean economy, worth 255 trillion Cothes 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, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. 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 impressive 143,859 Cothes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, the word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Fraguale Cothean Colonial Thesaurus, tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs, and a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fraguale Cothe's national animal is the Kitty, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Alyssian.

Fraguale Cothe is ranked 181,930th in the world and 8,024th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -77.22 on the Rand Index.
