The Armed Republic of Franmania is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Marshal Voievod Mitraliera with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 887 million Franmanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cugir. The average income tax rate is 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Franmanian economy, worth 101 trillion Cartridges a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 114,065 Cartridges, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, heavily-armed commandos play rock-paper-scissors over whether to execute criminals and foreign visitors, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, and Franmania's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franmania's national animal is the Lynx, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Franmania is ranked 102,199th in the world and 267th in The Wellspring for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,658.79 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
