The Free Land of Free Freethenia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.316 billion Freethenian Freemen enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Free Freethenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,072 trillion Frollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 168,256 Frollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,557,228 per year while the poor average 1,753, a ratio of 888 to 1.

Voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers, farm turkeys are given high doses of antidepressants to take their minds off the holiday season, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Free Freethenia's national animal is the Free Toed Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Free Freethenia is ranked 825th in the world and 1st in Keele for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 344.94 on the Hayek Index.
