Initializing dataclass of type dict

I have a static dictionary that I want to use in multiple scripts via import. I cannot come up with the proper syntax in my import file. Can someone tell me what the correct syntax is? TIA

class fanPoints:

This produces the error:
ValueError: mutable default <class ‘dict’> for field fanPoints is not allowed: use default_factory

Looking up default_factory I cannot find anything helpful.

It looks like it doesn’t like that the default value is mutable. Maybe try a frozendict from the collections module?

If that doesn’t work, try searching online for the full error message.
