The Personal Union with Werfond of Franco-British-American Empire is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Archie V Windsor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 851 million Franco-British-Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The New Sheffield Underground Megacity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Franco-British-American economy, worth 119 trillion Franc-Pound-Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 140,651 Franc-Pound-Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 588,101 per year while the poor average 21,925, a ratio of 26.8 to 1.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, and dessert dishes make up the Franco-British-American breakfast menu. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Franco-British-American Empire's national animal is the Eagle-Lion, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Franco-British-American Empire is ranked 177,157th in the world and 494th in First World Order for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -4.25 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
