The Federation of Free Republics is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Consuls Bolton and Nicholls with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.016 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 6.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Republican economy, worth a remarkable 1,158 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 82,661 Thalers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 421,337 per year while the poor average 8,944, 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 10,412th in the world and 1st in Lunia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 83.25 on the Rand Index.
