The Wretched of the Earth of Frattastan IV is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.507 billion Molotov-throwing rioters enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frattastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,182 trillion francolinos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 139,035 francolinos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, Frattastanian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. Crime is totally unknown. Frattastan IV's national animal is the guerrilla fighter, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Frattastan IV is ranked 205,998th in the world and 5,268th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -5.1 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
