The Personal Union with Werfond of Franco-British-American Empire is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Archie V Windsor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 863 million Franco-British-Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The New Sheffield Underground Megacity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Franco-British-American economy, worth 120 trillion Franc-Pound-Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 140,104 Franc-Pound-Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 630,471 per year while the poor average 19,207, a ratio of 32.8 to 1.

Rap artists are regularly arrested for promoting extremist groups, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, and there's stiff competition in the medical marketplace. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Franco-British-American Empire's national animal is the Eagle-Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Franco-British-American Empire is ranked 211,648th in the world and 503rd in First World Order for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -9.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
