The Queen's State of Fallbridge is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 15.466 billion Fallbridgeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 45.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Fallbridgean economy, worth 275 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 17,817 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

None has been named as Fallbridge's national religion, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, chemically brainwashed citizens praise the Governor's name on an hourly basis, and the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Gloucestershire. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fallbridge's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is none.

Fallbridge is ranked 161,183rd in the world and 1st in Gloucestershire for Most Developed, scoring 37.91 on the Human Development Index.
