The Theocracy of Fransmany is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Desmond XVI and Patriarch James IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 14.08 billion Fransmanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Habsburg-Lorraine. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The powerhouse Fransmanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,598 trillion Heldings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 113,504 Heldings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new intercity submarine SSN Pigeon Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, genetic researchers have been expelled, and business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fransmany's national animal is the Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Fransmainian Catholicism.

Fransmany is ranked 2,602nd in the world and 107th in Osiris for Lowest Crime Rates, with 126.41 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
