The Corporatist Oligarchy of New French Etat is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chef de l'État Marcel Sauvage with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, strictly enforced bedtime, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.309 billion French are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paris. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient French economy, worth 429 trillion National-Revolutionary Francs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 186,116 National-Revolutionary Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, and the Gallic Rooster is a protected species. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New French Etat's national animal is the Gallic Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

New French Etat is ranked 161,626th in the world and 34th in Nuevo Amanecer for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -8.96 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
