Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
Location: Atlantian Oceania
The Free Kingdom of Falcania is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by King Falcon III with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 20.709 billion 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, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining 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 widespread deforestation, and its currency is the decimalised Talon.
