The Free State of Frankland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Franklin IV with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, aversion to nipples, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.68 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 Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rowandale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Frankish economy, worth 623 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 133,145 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 498,552 per year while the poor average 24,877, a ratio of 20.0 to 1.

In government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, Frankland Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', young criminals are told they'll go to bed without supper if they do it again, and the nation's historic treasures have been sold off to Maxtopia's "Museum of Frankish Artifacts That They're Too Stupid to Appreciate". 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 98,569th in the world and 96th in St Abbaddon for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
