Frattastan IV

Population1.506 billion

Animalguerrilla fighter

The Wretched of the Earth of Frattastan IV is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.506 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frattastanian economy, worth 202 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 Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 134,143 francolinos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, autocrats are persona non grata, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and guerrilla fighters are considered a delicacy. 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 8,309th in the world and 181st in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 55.65 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
