The Republic of Franco-Philia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Frédéric Remy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 13.123 billion 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Law & Order are on the agenda. 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 9th in Europe and 1,037th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 84 Whatever.
