The Earldom of Fallsbury

The Commonwealth of The Earldom of Fallsbury is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Protector with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.128 billion Fallsburgers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Fallsburg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Fallsburger economy, worth a remarkable 2,275 trillion Counts a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 279,990 Counts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, even secular Fallsburgers are shouting "Blessed are the cheesemakers!", the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime is totally unknown. The Earldom of Fallsbury's national animal is the Nuckelevee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of Nemesis.

The Earldom of Fallsbury is ranked 1,050th in the world and 1st in The Community for Highest Poor Incomes, with 242,998.93 Standard Monetary Units.
