The Commonwealth of Fruhstburg is a very large, cultured nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 132 million Fruhstburgers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Fruhstburgian economy, worth 2.97 trillion Dollar Pancakes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 22,512 Dollar Pancakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fruhstburg's national animal is the Egg, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fruhstburg is ranked 157,390th in the world and 201st in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 273.18 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
