Regional Influence: Minnow
The Republic of Franco-Philia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Frédéric Remy with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 11.295 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
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 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.
Morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", the government seizes all major gold finds, and badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem. Franco-Philia's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Glot.
