The Free State of Frankland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Franklin IV with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.825 billion Franklanders are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rowandale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Frankish economy, worth 647 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 134,216 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 531,307 per year while the poor average 22,925, a ratio of 23.2 to 1.

It is said that a Frankish woman's work is never done, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Frankish beaches, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, and employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Frankland's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Heatagramism.

Frankland is ranked 7,734th in the world and 4th in St Abbaddon for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 11 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
