The Lawless Community of Fraton is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its enforced nudity. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.834 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Religion & Spirituality. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, military funding has been stripped back, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Fraton's national animal is the aardvark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the coin.

Fraton is ranked 3rd in 10000 Islands and 271st in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 182 Whatever.
