The Imperium of the West of Franco-British-American Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Edward X Windsor with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.186 billion Franco-British-Americans 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sheffield. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Franco-British-American economy, worth 737 trillion Franco-British-American Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 337,165 Franco-British-American Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,091,435 per year while the poor average 78,653, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Trespassers entering Emperor Edward X Windsor's office are immediately vaporized, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, and GP clinics are inundated by patients requesting prescriptions for alcohol. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franco-British-American Empire's national animal is the Eagle-Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Anglican Protestantism.

Franco-British-American Empire is ranked 18,737th in the world and 31st in Institute of Cellulose for Most Developed, scoring 83.92 on the Human Development Index.
