The Powerhouse State of Fdryden is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Carla Higgins with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.187 billion Fdrydenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burford. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fdrydenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,090 trillion Cactis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 402,933 Cactis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, war vets look after war animals, and there is a law against "filthy foreign food". Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fdryden's national animal is the Walleye, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fdryden is ranked 205,640th in the world and 52nd in Union of Democrats for Safest, scoring 5.35 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
