The Federation of Frahnkzaden is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Marc Stoltz with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.392 billion Franians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bretiz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Frahnkzadenian economy, worth 641 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 146,067 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 536,918 per year while the poor average 28,099, a ratio of 19.1 to 1.

The government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Frahnkzadenian beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Frahnkzaden's national animal is the Great Franian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Frahnkzaden is ranked 14,401st in the world and 672nd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 146,067.53 Standard Monetary Units.
