The Community of Little Friendship is a massive, safe nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory vegetarianism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.528 billion Little Friendshipians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dew Drop. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Little Friendshipian economy, worth 52.0 trillion Barters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Gambling. Average income is 34,025 Barters, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables, polygamy is legal, rice shortages have risen after paddy fields were drained to combat malaria, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is totally unknown. Little Friendship's national animal is the house cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Little Friendship is ranked 208,985th in the world and 9,654th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5.2 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
