The Wretched of the Earth of Frattastan IV is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.322 billion Molotov-throwing rioters enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frattastanian economy, worth 722 trillion francolinos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,802 francolinos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Frattastan IV City for fear of causing a fuss, wearing a daisy chain is a fast-track ticket to unemployment, high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism, and people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile. Crime is totally unknown. Frattastan IV's national animal is the guerrilla fighter, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Frattastan IV is ranked 109,565th in the world and 3,351st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Black Market, with 381 billion Standard Monetary Units.
