Frans became involved in the Dutch sector in 1999, when he became a citizen of the Republic of Flanders. He was vice-chancellor and minister of information and foreign affairs in the so called First Republic. In those days, he was also active in the Kingdom of Babkha, where he briefly held the position of associate justice.

In 2002 he founded the short-lived Islamic Republic of Antverpia, where he held the positions of regent and minister-president.

In 2007 he founded the United Provinces of the Netherlands, later renamed to Republic of the Netherlands and again to Islamic Internet Republic. This nation died due to internal strife in 2011. In 2013 he joined the Government-in-Exile and became its Grand Vizier. In 2020 the Government-in-exile claimed land on Micras and renamed the nation to Islamic Republic of New Batavia.

The constitutions he drafted usually featured a strong parliament, a ceremonial head of state and a government responsible to parliament.

Frans has also drafted the "Dutch Treaty" (Nederlands Verdrag), establishing the Dutch Treaty Organisation, aiming to unite the Dutch sector of micronationalism
