The Free Kingdom of Falcania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Falcon IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 28.88 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 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 7,091 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 Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 245,559 decimalised Talons, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,521,105 per year while the poor average 17,103, a ratio of 88.9 to 1.

Huge explosions in the sky are a daily occurrence in the cities, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM. 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 5,689th in the world and 6th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 86.21 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
