The Grand Republic of Fre Arystand is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mr President with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.122 billion Fre Arystandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wermelin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Fre Arystandian economy, worth 558 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 178,749 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.
The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, home renovation shows are increasingly popular, mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fre Arystand's national animal is the Arystandinian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.
