Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Lawless Community of Fraton is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 11.892 billion Fratonites are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals is solely concerned with Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Fratonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,432 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,441 coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 655,083 per year while the poor average 11,385, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and the military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries. 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 1,548th in 10000 Islands and 142,517th in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -488 Smiles Per Hour (net).
