The United Socialist States of Frandlia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 553 million Frandlians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lina. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Frandlian economy, worth 39.0 trillion Frands a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 70,460 Frands, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frandlia's national animal is the Glossinidae, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Frandlia is ranked 22,428th in the world and 624th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,856.27 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
