The Farallons

Population1.2 billion

LeaderTormund Giants-bane


The Empire of The Farallons is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tormund Giants-bane with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.2 billion Farallonsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bannockburn. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Farallonsian economy, worth 39.1 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,621 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into The Farallons, children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Farallons's national animal is the obscurial, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Farallons is ranked 31,757th in the world and 1,832nd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.96 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
