The Free Kingdom of Falcania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Falcon IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.941 billion Falcanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Roost. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Falcon's economy, worth a remarkable 8,767 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 Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 274,500 decimalised Talons, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,551,896 per year while the poor average 23,823, a ratio of 65.1 to 1.

The government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Falcania's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Falcania is ranked 155,459th in the world and 187th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Primitive, scoring -425.35 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
