The Sprawling Kingdom of Free Radio States is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Brain with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.466 billion Reptar Puzzles are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brown Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient funny economy, worth a remarkable 1,028 trillion Bobalafullas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,158 Bobalafullas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,450,208 per year while the poor average 6,490, a ratio of 223 to 1.

A serf by any other name works just as hard, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, a milk bath costs more than bathing in money, and children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Free Radio States's national animal is the Ape Escape, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kpop.

Free Radio States is ranked 103,703rd in the world and 3,072nd in the West Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,469.57 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
