The Republic of Franco-Philia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Frédéric Remy with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 15.644 billion Franco-Philians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville de Franco. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.
The large but stagnant Franco-Philian economy, worth 179 trillion glots a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 11,490 glots, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Frédéric Remy's mistress is the belle at many state balls, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, surveillance cameras are banned, and the government has an "easy come, easy go" policy on youth crime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franco-Philia's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
