The Evil Mad Scientists of Freddland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fredd with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 35.776 billion Freddlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freddville. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Freddlandian economy, worth an astonishing 18,810 trillion fried eggs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 525,788 fried eggs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Hunters often become the hunted, worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and Fredd often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Freddland's national animal is the gorilla, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none of the above.

Freddland is ranked 2,863rd in the world and 5th in Hell for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 21,287.85 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
