Frestes Mountain

Population1.183 billion


The Kingdom of Frestes Mountain is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.183 billion Frestes Mountainians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The strong Frestes Mountainian economy, worth 65.7 trillion kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 55,504 kronor, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 353,136 per year while the poor average 3,603, a ratio of 98.0 to 1.

Organ donation is compulsory, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, genetic researchers have been expelled, and most pop videos prominently feature the Frestes Mountainian flag. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Frestes Mountain's national animal is the giraffe, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Frestes Mountain is ranked 83,823rd in the world and 65th in Middle Earth for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring zero on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
