Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lawless Community of Fraton is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 14.765 billion Fratonites 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Law & Order and Environment not funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Fratonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,704 trillion coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 115,418 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, and pro-life activists often lecture pregnant women undergoing routine prenatal screening. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fraton's national animal is the aardvark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fraton is ranked 161,118th in the world and 2,008th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 41.18 on the Human Development Index.
