The Dictatorship of Fraguale Cothe is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alyssa Ong with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.1 billion Fraguale Cotheans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Further Math. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Fraguale Cothean economy, worth 300 trillion Cothes 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. 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 142,868 Cothes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, it is said that a Fraguale Cothean woman's work is never done, and military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fraguale Cothe's national animal is the Kitty, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Alyssian.

Fraguale Cothe is ranked 206,332nd in the world and 9,221st in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -8.37 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
