The Vinlandic Republic of Falvaard is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ręgenfrķše Trżgstaš with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.272 billion Falves enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kristarant Fals. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Falvic economy, worth a remarkable 4,489 trillion Falvic Emblems a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 293,976 Falvic Emblems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Falvaard's national animal is the Pine marten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Falvaard is ranked 177,727th in the world and 1,045th in Europe for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,775.14 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
