The Everything's Shiny Cap'n of Not to Fret is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The democratic, devout population of 1.256 billion Not to Fretians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miranda. The average income tax rate is 30.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Not to Fretian economy, worth 62.4 trillion precious metals a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,696 precious metals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Not to Fret's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Not to Fret is ranked 155,828th in the world and 4,766th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.83 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
