The Confederacy of Franche Comte is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Adrien Fournier with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.427 billion Comtois enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Besanšon. The average income tax rate is 38.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Franche Comtean economy, worth 192 trillion Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 134,715 Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Chamois Dung" has been declared a national treasure, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franche Comte's national animal is the Chamois, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Franche Comte is ranked 76,380th in the world and 30th in Oatland for Most Average, scoring 40.8 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
