Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lawless Community of Fraton is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its hatred of cheese, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.137 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 1,689 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 111,637 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the new hit series "Fraton's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country, public nudity is compulsory, and exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles. 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 151,964th in the world and 1,704th in 10000 Islands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -155.56 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
