The Nation of Free Radio States is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Big Man with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.286 billion Funnies 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brown Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient funny economy, worth 978 trillion Bobalafullas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 185,034 Bobalafullas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 581,165 per year while the poor average 45,107, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Produce labels read 'may contain traces of food', the relatives of suicide victims tend to be angry rather than sad, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Free Radio States at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Free Radio States's national animal is the Ape Escape, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kpop.

Free Radio States is ranked 7,791st in the world and 171st in the West Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 185,034.62 Standard Monetary Units.
