The Queen's State of New Falham is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor of the Council with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 33.198 billion Falhamites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.9%.

The powerhouse Falhamer economy, worth a remarkable 2,096 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,153 betales, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and the government refuses to transmit electricity to secessionist regions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Falham's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Falham is ranked 35,372nd in the world and 28th in United States of America for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.96 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
