The Dictatorship of Fraguale Cothe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alyssa Ong with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.632 billion Fraguale Cotheans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Further Math. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Fraguale Cothean economy, worth 230 trillion Cothes 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, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. 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 impressive 141,329 Cothes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bilingual Fraguale Cotheans are viewed with suspicion, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Fraguale Cothe at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, and children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fraguale Cothe's national animal is the Kitty, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Alyssian.

Fraguale Cothe is ranked 181,961st in the world and 8,352nd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -77.67 on the Rand Index.
