The Republic of Frieszia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by St Patrick with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.255 billion Frieszians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gnohalle. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frieszian economy, worth 249 trillion gold guilders a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,564 gold guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's never "just a game" with Frieszian sports fans, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frieszia's national animal is the leprechaun coronet lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Frieszia is ranked 7,930th in the world and 481st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.59 on the Human Development Index.
