The Armed Republic of Franlakinionds is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jack with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, compulsory military service, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.914 billion Franlakiniondsians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andorra. The average income tax rate is 26.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Franlakiniondsian economy, worth 322 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 168,561 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, the study of medicine is popular throughout Franlakinionds, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franlakinionds's national animal is the hyena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Baofis.

Franlakinionds is ranked 64,094th in the world and 1,836th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 196 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
