The United Socialist Alliance of Franchina is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Maopoleon V with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.571 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 14,269 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 499,453 euro de la yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, the nation's new currency features full-length portraits of Maopoleon V in ermine and velvet garb, neighbourhood gossips whip up controversy about those receiving adult merchandise, and criminals are really screwed. 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 279,830th in the world and 10,346th in Balder for Nicest Citizens, with 0.08 average smiles per day.
