The Empire of Falconica is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 117 million Falconicans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 9.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Falconican economy, worth 7.77 trillion Madeirs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 66,368 Madeirs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Falconica's national animal is the Gem, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Falconica is ranked 35,731st in the world and 1,426th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 103.72 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
