The Therapeutic State of Fraire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Simon Ackerbacker with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical population of 19.383 billion Frairians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khallar. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The powerhouse Frairian economy, worth a remarkable 2,303 trillion Shillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 118,837 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, fat-shaming is now public policy, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fraire's national animal is the white spiderwolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jakelism.

Fraire is ranked 15,770th in the world and 85th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 305.32 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
