The Republic of France of Conservitopistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Maximilien DeGaulle with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.064 billion Frenchmen enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 32.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French economy, worth a remarkable 1,398 trillion livres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 138,940 livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Conservitopistan's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Reformed Christianity.

Conservitopistan is ranked 15,932nd in the world and 4th in The Confederacy of Free Lands for Most Developed, scoring 86.31 on the Human Development Index.
