The Dizzy Flying Saucers of Doom of Frisbeeteria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vizzini with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ritual sacrifices, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 34.884 billion Brutes 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 government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Florin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Brutish economy, worth a remarkable 5,477 trillion Guilders a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,008 Guilders, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 804,895 per year while the poor average 16,794, a ratio of 47.9 to 1.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Guilder battlesuits, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and common misteaks slip threw as the Issues Editing Team adds issues by the hundread (Frisbeeteria has found 7 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Frisbeeteria's national animal is the Shrieking Eel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Buttercup.

Frisbeeteria is ranked 58,521st in the world and 115th in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 61.18 on the Human Development Index.
