The United Socialist Alliance of Franchina is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maopoleon V with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.376 billion Franchinans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beiris. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Franchinan economy, worth a remarkable 9,491 trillion euro de la yuan a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 424,197 euro de la yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, public urination is on the increase, vacationing Franchinans expect to be treated as royalty, and it is firmly believed that cameras steal souls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franchina's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Franchina is ranked 39,318th in the world and 1,667th in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
