The Republic of Fronern is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Lord Commander Alard Lüdwig with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, public floggings, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.456 billion Fronernians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fronernia. The average income tax rate is 91.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Fronernian economy, worth 192 trillion Frones a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,161 Frones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, out-of-work actors say they can't complain, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fronern's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Froneaphoni.

Fronern is ranked 78,570th in the world and 1,370th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 192 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
