The Commonwealth of New Frysland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Eliza Olerink with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.818 billion New Fryslandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frydlandsburg. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Fryslandian economy, worth 216 trillion kromers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 119,021 kromers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, halberds are common 18th birthday presents, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Frysland's national animal is the iridiscent softbill, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Frysland is ranked 9,259th in the world and 21st in Libertarian Socialist Confederation for Smartest Citizens, with 96.78 quips per hour.
