The Principality of Froggend is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Frogman with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.558 billion Froggendians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Small Pond. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Froggendian economy, worth a remarkable 1,765 trillion lilypads a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 167,249 lilypads, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 507,819 per year while the poor average 42,806, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, the full weight of the law is being applied against hate speech, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and all restaurants close before dinner time. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Froggend's national animal is the frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tadpole Miraclism.

Froggend is ranked 216,112th in the world and 59th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -10.84 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
