The Free Land of Friedistan is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 164 million Friedistanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The very strong Friedistanian economy, worth 9.91 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is 60,421 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 383,717 per year while the poor average 3,942, a ratio of 97.3 to 1.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, opposition party MPs campaign shirtless to show off their numerous lash scars, and cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Friedistan's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Friedistan is ranked 18,443rd in the world and 5th in Social Liberal Union for Most Extreme, scoring 37.72 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
