The Queen's State of Fallbridge is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.835 billion Fallbridgeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Social Policy, and International Aid. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Fallbridgean economy, worth 24.1 trillion betales a year, is highly specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,730 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Elections have been outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fallbridge's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
