The Free Society of FSI is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Thomas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.736 billion Freemen live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and International Aid. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong Freeman economy, worth a remarkable 2,175 trillion falconets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 129,973 falconets, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 774,976 per year while the poor average 9,958, a ratio of 77.8 to 1.

Terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, children are seen fighting in the playground for bread scraps that fall out of diamond-encrusted lunchboxes, politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with falconets, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. FSI's national animal is the Falconet, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

FSI is ranked 3,579th in the world and 33rd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 29 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
