Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Kingdom of Falcania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Falcon IV with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.434 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, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 6,805 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 Gambling, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 248,071 decimalised Talons, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,575,565 per year while the poor average 16,181, a ratio of 97.4 to 1.

International war-crimes are good for business and business is booming, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, and annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Falcania's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Falcania is ranked 826th in the world and 3rd in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 18,764.34 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
