The United Socialist Alliance of Franchina is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maopoleon V with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.637 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 an astonishing 12,394 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 483,466 euro de la yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity. 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 304,397th in the world and 10,015th in Balder for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 14.51 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
