The Everything's Shiny Cap'n of Not to Fret is a massive, genial nation, ruled by River Tam with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The democratic, devout population of 2.597 billion Not to Fretians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miranda. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Not to Fretian economy, worth 129 trillion precious metals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 49,700 precious metals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, Buddhism has been named as Not to Fret's national religion, and River Tam has just been declared ruler of Not to Fret in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Not to Fret's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Not to Fret is ranked 74,851st in the world and 57th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Highest Economic Output, with 129 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
