The People's Republic of Fracedonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jarl Balgruuf The Greater with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.562 billion Fracedonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fracedon. The average income tax rate is 33.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fracedonian economy, worth 159 trillion Decks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 102,319 Decks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Fracedonian politicians, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown. Fracedonia's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fracedonia is ranked 47,895th in the world and 1,749th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,869.52 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
