The Free Kingdom of Falcania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Falcon III with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.489 billion Falcanians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Shirley. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the government is a law unto itself, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Falcania's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its currency is the decimalised Talon.

Falcania is ranked 167th in Atlantian Oceania and 107,799th in the world for Safest, scoring -39.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
