The Free Republic of Frankender is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.363 billion Frankenderians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lincoln Hills. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frankenderian economy, worth 701 trillion Mollies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 130,796 Mollies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, and claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frankender's national animal is the Golden Retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Frankender is ranked 19,015th in the world and 1,037th in Lazarus for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,398.48 Tourists Per Hour.
