The Burn it with Fire of Frances Francis the First of France is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mime with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 12.06 billion First French Franciniteses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of TFFFoFFtFoF City. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Frances Francis the First of Francean economy, worth 725 trillion Baguetteses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 60,129 Baguetteses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Many friends and relatives of Mime have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frances Francis the First of France's national animal is the Frog Legs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wine and Smokes.

Frances Francis the First of France is ranked 172,840th in the world and 7,909th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -68.33 on the Rand Index.
