The Recalcitrant WA Member State of Frankender is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.848 billion Frankenderians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, 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 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frankenderian economy, worth 882 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 128,936 Mollies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 13,801st in the world and 833rd in Lazarus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 88.69 law-abiding acts per hour.
