The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The imploded Framosian economy, worth 174 billion Asurans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 7,606 Asurans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Many marriages go virtually unconsummated, the Framosian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", farting etiquette is taught in schools, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Framosia's national animal is the Mongoose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
