The Democratic Empire of Fredericksborg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bob Keating with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.705 billion Fredericksborgians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Epping. The average income tax rate is 29.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fredericksborgian economy, worth 979 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,089 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences", women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fredericksborg's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is DeVinism.

Fredericksborg is ranked 7,472nd in the world and 437th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 89.28 on the Human Development Index.
