The Holy Imperial Feudal States of Falmards is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 619 million Falmardians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stormcastle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Falmardsian economy, worth 70.7 trillion Gold pennies a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 114,218 Gold pennies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 387,222 per year while the poor average 24,876, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, whole-wheat loaves are sold under the counter in brown paper bags, Harry Potter books are banned, and funding for education has been redirected into the military. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Falmards's national animal is the Black Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Falmards is ranked 86,024th in the world and 99th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Fattest Citizens, with 9.85 Obesity Rate.
