The Imperium of the West of Franco-British-American Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Edward X Windsor with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.175 billion Franco-British-Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sheffield. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Franco-British-American economy, worth 734 trillion Franco-British-American Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 337,508 Franco-British-American Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,092,548 per year while the poor average 78,733, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, peer pressure from cooler world leaders directs Franco-British-American government policy, the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franco-British-American Empire's national animal is the Eagle-Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Anglican Protestantism.

Franco-British-American Empire is ranked 1,050th in the world and 4th in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 10,647.18 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
