The Free Kingdom of Falcania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Falcon III with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 22.748 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.
The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Shirley. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient the Falcon's economy, worth a remarkable 4,584 trillion decimalised Talons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 201,547 decimalised Talons, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.
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 pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Falcania's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
