The Empire of The 4th french empire is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 438 million 4th french empireans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Paris. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse 4th french empirean economy, worth 46.7 trillion New Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,702 New Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf", libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The 4th french empire's national animal is the french, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The 4th french empire is ranked 28,573rd in the world and 355th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 106,702.17 Standard Monetary Units.
