The Federation of Lafran is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its burgeoning tiger population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.208 billion Lafranians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The strong Lafranian economy, worth 188 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 58,725 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lafran's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lafran is ranked 49,053rd in the world and 1,276th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 36.81 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
