The Holy Empire of Federated States of Francia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Stellarch Honorius de Lacroix with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.029 billion Francians 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, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novum Parisium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Frankish economy, worth 477 trillion Reformed Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,736 Reformed Florins, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, and indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Federated States of Francia's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Stellarchism.

Federated States of Francia is ranked 76,016th in the world and 40th in Confederacy of Allied States for Rudest Citizens, with 58.48 Insults Per Minute.
