The Dictatorship of Fraguale Cothe is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Alyssa Ong with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, prohibition of alcohol, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.807 billion Fraguale Cotheans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Further Math. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Fraguale Cothean economy, worth 254 trillion Cothes 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. 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 140,580 Cothes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, Fraguale Cothe's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, obesity is a thing of the past due to the nation's sickening cuisine, and first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fraguale Cothe's national animal is the Kitty, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Alyssian.

Fraguale Cothe is ranked 3,508th in the world and 204th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 149.94 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
