The Federation of Free Republics is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Consuls Bolton and Nicholls with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.536 billion Republicans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Republica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Republican economy, worth a remarkable 1,270 trillion Thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 81,792 Thalers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 416,909 per year while the poor average 8,850, a ratio of 47.1 to 1.

Consuls Bolton and Nicholls can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Consuls Bolton and Nicholls to meetings with foreign heads of state, babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, and competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Free Republics's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Republics is ranked 97,312th in the world and 1st in Lunia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 71.78 Years.
