The Bonapartist Empire of The Great French State is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Napoléon IX with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.272 billion Frenches have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paris. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The French economy, worth 188 trillion Francs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,103 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great French State's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Great French State is ranked 18,275th in the world and 4th in Union of Liberal Nations for Most Inclusive, scoring 141.46 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
