The Christian Republic of Freyford is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Christopher Sastyaviando Lebe with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 8.079 billion Freyfordians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chintoff City. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Freyfordian economy, worth 824 trillion Fords a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,020 Fords, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Freyford's national animal is the Jatayu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Freyford is ranked 93,899th in the world and 3,557th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 43.72984701288 Days.
