The Free and Open Peoples of Franconia Empire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Xemptoworth with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.165 billion Franconians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Juarez. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Franconia Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 2,153 trillion Astrons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 142,021 Astrons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franconia Empire's national animal is the Morpentine Snake of Jovinia, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Menonite Bretheren Christianity.

Franconia Empire is ranked 267,990th in the world and 18th in Selene for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -15.68 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
