The Empire of Freisonnia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 290 million Freisonnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gryfsberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Freisonnian economy, worth 34.1 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 117,573 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 365,419 per year while the poor average 29,100, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

A proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, and shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Freisonnia's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Freisonnia is ranked 25,239th in the world and 1,386th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 71.01 on the Human Development Index.
