The Holy Empire of New Franshire is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 343 million Luxemich Citizens 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luxemich. The average income tax rate is 30.0%.

The frighteningly efficient New Franshirean economy, worth 37.4 trillion Reich Francs 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 impressive 108,979 Reich Francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hell is not always other people, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Franshire's national animal is the Armed Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Franshire is ranked 218,130th in the world and 1,718th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring zero on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
