Fran Advar

Population2.113 billion

CapitalPort Bynald
LeaderPresident Joe Varegnas


The Federal Republic of Fran Advar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Joe Varegnas with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.113 billion Fran Advarians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Bynald. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fran Advarian economy, worth 246 trillion deniers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,643 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Taxpayers cringe whenever someone brings up the Former Antagonist Reparations Treaty, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fran Advar's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Fran Advar is ranked 14,843rd in the world and 836th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.35 on the Human Development Index.
