Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lawless Community of Fraton is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 14.974 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 1,673 trillion coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,741 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

All fantasy fiction has officially been deemed non-canon, closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and graffiti graces every city's streets. 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 154,443rd in the world and 1,731st in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -69.14 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
