Frattastan IV

Population2.209 billion

Animalguerrilla fighter

The Wretched of the Earth of Frattastan IV is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and enforced nudity. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.209 billion Molotov-throwing rioters enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frattastanian economy, worth 299 trillion francolinos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 135,481 francolinos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Frattastanian democracy, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, and squatters are reclaiming abandoned igloos. Crime is totally unknown. Frattastan IV's national animal is the guerrilla fighter, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Frattastan IV is ranked 32,562nd in the world and 1,463rd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Drug Use, scoring 91.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
