Frattastan IV

Population3.992 billion

Animalguerrilla fighter

The Wretched of the Earth of Frattastan IV is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.992 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 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frattastanian economy, worth 538 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 134,776 francolinos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One of the nation's leading exports is empty platitudes, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Frattastan IV City, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. 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 174,804th in the world and 4,263rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring -70.75 on the Rand Index.
