The Federal Kingdom of Faircliff is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King-Emperor Haydn IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.719 billion Faircliffians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Willowhurst. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Faircliffian economy, worth 728 trillion Lokpas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,346 Lokpas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Faircliff's national animal is the Barbary lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Faircliff is ranked 94,379th in the world and 4,384th in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 563 billion Standard Monetary Units.
