The Republic of Freiheiland is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 797 million Frees live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, with Industry and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echarsendrage. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The powerhouse Freiheilandian economy, worth 78.0 trillion Olives a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is 97,830 Olives, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 285,386 per year while the poor average 26,499, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Copyright laws have been abolished, Freiheilandian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and the country is littered with broken homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Freiheiland's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Freiheiland is ranked 33,802nd in the world and 1,826th in Lazarus for Highest Average Incomes, with 97,830.57 Standard Monetary Units.
