The Democratic Republic of Greater Frank is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 411 million Greater Frankians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Tournai. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Greater Frankian economy, worth 36.5 trillion Frankish Deniers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,780 Frankish Deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Greater Tournai Natural History Museum, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Frank's national animal is the Greater Spotted Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater Frank is ranked 157,139th in the world and 300th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.28 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
