The Republic of FreeFishers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.341 billion FreeFisherFolks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salmobright. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The all-consuming FreeFishersian economy, worth a remarkable 1,435 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,301 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, and police officers spend more time on calisthenics than actually catching criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FreeFishers's national animal is the salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

FreeFishers is ranked 182,322nd in the world and 8,948th in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 6.91 flags saluted per person per day.
