The Dreaming City of Fractethyst is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sosu with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.128 billion Fractals have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mriya. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fractal economy, worth 167 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 148,705 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Motorway service stations often have a higher population than the hinterland villages that the roads lead to, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and maps of the enemy's positions are often covered in blood. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Fractethyst's national animal is the Grey Catbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fractethyst is ranked 236,828th in the world and 1,291st in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.22 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
