Location: the South Pacific



Population6.622 billion



The Republic of FreeFishers is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.622 billion FreeFisherFolks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salmobright. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming FreeFishersian economy, worth 770 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,411 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, and police officers spend more time on calisthenics than actually catching criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FreeFishers's national animal is the salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

FreeFishers is ranked 51,572nd in the world and 2,222nd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
