The Democratic States of Fres is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Tonya with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 4.637 billion Fresians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellenburg Depot. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Fresian economy, worth 309 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,708 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fres's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Fresian.

Fres is ranked 136,096th in the world and 115th in Anteria for Largest Black Market, with 195 billion Standard Monetary Units.
