The Republic of Franco-Philia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Frédéric Remy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.735 billion Franco-Philians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Healthcare and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville de Franco. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, armed police units patrol the roads late at night, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Franco-Philia's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Glot.

Franco-Philia is ranked 22nd in Europe and 1,330th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 124 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
