The Benevolent Dictatorship of Falkasia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Vladimir Kazyenko with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 30.539 billion Falkasians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ekaterine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Falkasian economy, worth a remarkable 5,803 trillion Falkasian Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 190,043 Falkasian Dinars, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, being Premier Vladimir Kazyenko has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and hunters often become the hunted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Falkasia's national animal is the Imperial Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Falkasia is ranked 257,156th in the world and 25th in Teremara for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -25.69 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
