The Great Nation of Franketonnia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Cardnal Hermann von Wissmann with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.307 billion Franks 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Holy city of Tarłystok. The average income tax rate is 40.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Frankish economy, worth 502 trillion Reich's Marks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,709 Reich's Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The industries of Franketonnia are coughing all the way to the bank, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franketonnia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cristianity.

Franketonnia is ranked 195,327th in the world and 35th in Novus Lucidum for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -9.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
