The Lawless Community of Fraton is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.448 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 1,648 trillion coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 114,114 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are abandoning their homes en masse in a widespread panic over asbestos, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, and the government is forced to pander to the will of every fruitcake politician. 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 176,654th in the world and 1,954th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 1.55 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
