The People's Republic of Francovania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joseph Franz Christian Carlos Francisco with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.627 billion Francovanians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Francovanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,763 trillion Francos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 183,234 Francos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Francovanian lands, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. Crime is totally unknown. Francovania's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Francovania is ranked 200th in the world and 6th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 98.41 on the Human Development Index.
