Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Lawless Community of Fraton is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its public floggings, enforced nudity, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.238 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 1,412 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,384 coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 395,857 per year while the poor average 24,684, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and Fraton's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over 10000 Islands. 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 1,059th in 10000 Islands and 76,469th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 63 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
