The Unified Democracy of Fredmenton is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Fred with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.86 billion Fredmentonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utamville. The average income tax rate is 54.7%.
The all-consuming Fredric economy, worth 306 trillion Tracons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,253 Tracons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.
Atheists are heavily taxed, foreign musicians that General Fred dislikes are turned away at the border, the Fredmenton Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and war vets look after war animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fredmenton's national animal is the Sea Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.
