The Robotic Imperium of Franco-British-American Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by AUTHORITY with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.713 billion Franco-British-Americans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Cardiff. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Franco-British-American economy, worth a remarkable 1,052 trillion Franco-British-American dollars 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 388,094 Franco-British-American dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Internet flame wars have been known to cause real-world casualties, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Franco-British-American Empire, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franco-British-American Empire's national animal is the Eagle-Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Lux Progressus.

Franco-British-American Empire is ranked 3,278th in the world and 6th in Institute of Cellulose for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 718,547 Standard Monetary Units.
