The Pass the Grand Duchy of Fredanica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Right Honourable Freda Danica with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.22 billion Freddies are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freda Freda. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Fredanican economy, worth a remarkable 2,535 trillion Danics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 178,306 Danics, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, Freddyloon is one of the most popular forenames in Fredanica, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fredanica's national animal is the Freddyloon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fredanica is ranked 4,261st in the world and 123rd in the Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 394.78 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
