The Democratic Empire of Fredericksborg is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Bob Keating with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.561 billion Fredericksborgians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Epping. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fredericksborgian economy, worth 947 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 207,691 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Helicopter parenting is on the rise, you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fredericksborg's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is DeVinism.

Fredericksborg is ranked 184th in the world and 6th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 23,148.29 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
