Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population1.333 billion



The Republic of Friithnicity is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karald with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.333 billion Friithnicityians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stalkhome. The average income tax rate is 68.3%.

The all-consuming Friithnicityian economy, worth 117 trillion Arlīsənərs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,380 Arlīsənərs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Friithnicity's national animal is the Friinmal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Friithnicity is ranked 41,575th in the world and 1,888th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
