The Republic of Frieszia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by St Patrick with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 2.088 billion Frieszians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gnohalle. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frieszian economy, worth 231 trillion gold guilders a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,780 gold guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags, drunk leprechauns pelt countryside ramblers with gold coins (Frieszia has found 1 easter egg), bizarre-looking creatures called 'leprechaun coronet liondogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frieszia's national animal is the leprechaun coronet lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Frieszia is ranked 9,108th in the world and 512th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,699.05 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
