The Somehow Alive Republic of French Roman Republic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Charlemagne with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 1.251 billion French Romans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Pompeii. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient French Roman Republician economy, worth 174 trillion Aureus a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 139,210 Aureus, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 504,325 per year while the poor average 27,395, a ratio of 18.4 to 1.

A referendum must be held in order for any new law to be passed, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, a major religion has been named as French Roman Republic's national religion, and money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. French Roman Republic's national animal is the Gallic Rooster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

French Roman Republic is ranked 220,695th in the world and 7,129th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 114.18 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
