The Commonwealth of Ste Franin is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Reece Dawson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 859 million Ste Franinians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mons Calpe. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ste Franinian economy, worth 85.8 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,828 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-guilder treacle machine, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and an enormous health awareness programme is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ste Franin's national animal is the Bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ste Franin is ranked 6,397th in the world and 61st in The Free Nations Region for Most Influential, scoring 9,255 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
