The Federation of Falconhedge is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by FalconHedge with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.774 billion Falconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falco City. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Falconhedgean economy, worth 540 trillion FedFalco Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 143,089 FedFalco Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Falconhedge is building an army to protect its overseas territories, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Falconhedge's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Falconhedge is ranked 11,265th in the world and 597th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,205.76 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
