The Just Retired Wanderer of Francisco Sendrijas is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dagohoy with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.99 billion Francisco Sendrijasians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manila. The average income tax rate is 62.3%.

The Francisco Sendrijasian economy, worth 831 trillion cheese dips 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. 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 39,630 cheese dips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Dagohoy is the self-declared God of all Francisco Sendrijas, the government is avowedly atheist, Dagohoy has just been declared ruler of Francisco Sendrijas in an international press conference, and Francisco Sendrijas has designated Manila as its capital city. Crime is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Francisco Sendrijas's national animal is the chicken-hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Animism.

Francisco Sendrijas is ranked 77,527th in the world and 1st in Lost Horizon for Most Cultured, scoring 65 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
