The Kongerige of Frisemark is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Asmund VI Gaille-LÝvenÝrn with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.464 billion Frisik are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hagenav. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Frisik economy, worth 137 trillion kroner a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,052 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, Asmund VI Gaille-LÝvenÝrn's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and the entire entry for Frisemark in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frisemark's national animal is the Giant Petrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Frisemark is ranked 131,672nd in the world and 195th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 112,762 Standard Monetary Units.
