The Republican Republic of Frieszia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Van van Goop with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.062 billion Frieszians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gnohalle. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Frieszi economy, worth 704 trillion guilders a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,182 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, Van van Goop steals from the rich and gives to the needy, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frieszia's national animal is the Coronet Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Frieszia is ranked 71,527th in the world and 1,439th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 73.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
