The Republic of Frieszia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 603 million 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gnohalle. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Frieszian economy, worth 48.0 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,521 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, research into 'designer babies' is banned, and sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
