The Blessed Kingdom of Frolacia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ferdinand I Manori with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.731 billion Frolacians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auvridia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Frolacian economy, worth 427 trillion Cortisans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,706 Cortisans, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 461,157 per year while the poor average 41,926, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, just as students finish their homework it's time for school, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frolacia's national animal is the Saber-Toothed Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Saints.

Frolacia is ranked 96,412th in the world and 438th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Smartest Citizens, with 31.3 Quips Per Hour.
