The Uncivilized and Vile Manners of Frattastan II is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Josef K with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.331 billion Molotov-throwing rioters are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Social Policy, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Frattastanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,670 trillion francolinos 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 Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. 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 200,250 francolinos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Josef K wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, Frattastanian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, supervisors in Frattastan II commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, and aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Frattastan II's national animal is the guerrilla fighter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Spinozism.

Frattastan II is ranked 279,973rd in the world and 7,011th in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 0.86 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
