The Free Republic of Fraisse is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Representative Gently with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.792 billion Fraissians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Clayfield. The average income tax rate is 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Fraissian economy, worth a remarkable 1,511 trillion Frits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 109,570 Frits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Fraisse's national animal is the Woodpecker, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fraisse is ranked 3,119th in the world and 31st in Osiris for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 94 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
