The Free Republic of Frappuccino is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, prohibition of alcohol, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 38.519 billion Frappuccinos are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Defense, and Environment. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.4%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Frappuccinoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,883 trillion cd-rs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 74,871 cd-rs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 381,629 per year while the poor average 8,101, a ratio of 47.1 to 1.

Voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, punitive tariffs protect local industry, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Frappuccino's national animal is the computer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Frappuccino is ranked 258th in the world and 1st in The New Meritocracy for Most Stationary, with 5,536.70478984 Days.
