The United Socialist Alliance of Franchina is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maopoleon V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.527 billion Franchinans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beiris. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Franchinan economy, worth a remarkable 7,770 trillion euro de la yuan 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Tourism. 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 378,531 euro de la yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franchina's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Franchina is ranked 226,510th in the world and 8,406th in Balder for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -38.14 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
