The Republic of Grootfries Rijk is a small, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 29 million Frisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.3%.

The strong Frisian economy, worth 1.84 trillion ducats a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is 63,285 ducats, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', puppies given out free in marketing promotions are often tossed straight into the trash, lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Grootfries Rijk's national animal is the Frisian cattle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grootfries Rijk is ranked 42,233rd in the world and 2nd in Ixars Puppet Storage for Most Pro-Market, scoring 63.75 on the Rand Index.
