The People's Republic of Francovania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Joseph Franz Christian Carlos Francisco with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.381 billion Francovanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
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 1,526 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 182,113 Francos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, autocrats are persona non grata, and invading armies are given hard glares for their cheek. 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.
