Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lawless Community of Fraton is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 14.276 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 1,600 trillion coins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,117 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Fratonian Embarrassments, cars are banned, and children in school learn that marriage and slavery go hand in hand. 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 1,090th in the world and 14th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring 158.11 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
