The Free and Open Peoples of Franconia Empire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hildiiga Fjölden with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.475 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Jonas. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Franconia Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 2,693 trillion Valentes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,769 Valentes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Prime Minister Hildiiga Fjölden's wardrobe, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. 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 211,574th in the world and 39th in Selene for Most Pro-Market, scoring 27.22 on the Rand Index.
