The Republic of Frenchist is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 287 million Frenchistians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 34.3%.
The Frenchistian economy, worth 17.8 trillion Valeur unités a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,046 Valeur unités, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
Diaper sales are up, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and politicians tack on a service charge for assisting with casework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frenchist's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
