The Kingdom of Frightanation is a small, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 45 million Ghosts enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 24.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The a Ghost economy, worth 2.01 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,575 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frightanation's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
