The Empire of Francomia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Her Imperial Majesty Empress Tatiana with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 5.836 billion Francomians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Versailles. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Francomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,234 trillion Lanimen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 211,536 Lanimen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

White strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, government-funded marriage counseling is showing very limited success, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Francomia's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperialism.

Francomia is ranked 38,785th in the world and 65th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 245,548 Standard Monetary Units.
