To this end, Free Country can muster a meager police force consisting of [[Homestar Runner]], [[Pom Pom]], [[Coach Z]], and [[Bubs]] to ensure that anyone engaged in [[Crimes committed by Strong Bad|criminal behavior]] have been [[Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon|placed firmly]] in [[jail]] (a large [[Cardboard Boxes|cardboard box]]). Since there is no need for an army (nor a government to stand one up), Free Country has no official military. It is, however, home to the [[Homestarmy]], a meager militia that includes a [[Frank Bennedetto|popcorn machine]] and is led by Homestar Runner. The Homestarmy once attempted to conquer Strong Badia (see below), but appears to represent no cohesive political movement (other than expressing discontent stemming from "playing second fiddle to a two-bit [[wrestleman]] and his yellow dog"). The King of Town has occasionally expressed an intention to exercise actual power, going so far as to mobilize [[The Municipality|his own military force]] headed up by [[The Poopsmith]], as seen in [[disconnected]]. A more legitimate prison apparently exists, as [[Coach Z]] (and later [[Strong Sad]]) both end up incarcerated in the Free Country USA Penitentiary, according to [[Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 17.2]].

Besides the King's castle (which would be the seat of government if the King's rule had any legitimacy), there is a different building containing a [[smoky office]] which has been used for various purposes, including a [[The Interview|newsroom]], [[Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon|police station]], and a set for the ''[[Dangeresque (film series)|Dangeresque]]'' films.

Besides the King's castle (which would be the seat of government if the King's rule had any legitimacy), there seems to be a "[[Smoky Office|Town Hall]]" of sorts, which has been used for various purposes, including a [[The Interview|newsroom]], [[Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon|police station]], and a set for the ''[[Dangeresque (film series)|Dangeresque]]'' films, though not for actual political administration.
The name and the currency used imply that this town is in the United States of America, and in [[trading cards]], Strong Bad makes reference to himself "here in the states<!-- lowercase sic -->" when addressing a Canadian writer.

They may have to pay [[taxes]], however, as evidenced by [[A Decemberween Pageant]] and [[Arcade Game]].
