The Democratic Empire of Fredericksborg is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sonia Hornery MP with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.731 billion Fredericksborgians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wallsend. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fredericksborgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,275 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,496 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, there's never enough space in space, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders Sonia Hornery MP wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fredericksborg's national animal is the Nervous Bean, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Fredericksborg is ranked 147,928th in the world and 7,255th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 21.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
