The Federal Kingdom of Faircliff is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King-Emperor Haydn IV with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.374 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, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Willowhurst. The average income tax rate is 77.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Faircliffian economy, worth 713 trillion Lokpas a year, is quite 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 an impressive 111,899 Lokpas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, this year's comedy award has left mothers-in-law seething, and the arms industry is strictly regulated. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 186,738th in the world and 9,215th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 87.33 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
