OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Colony of Falgabard is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, otherworldly petting zoo, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 850 million Falgabardians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Llornaderek. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Falgabardian economy, worth 79.0 trillion Gils 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 92,958 Gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, hospitals in Falgabard are too busy serving the needs of The East Pacific to see Falgabardians, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Falgabard's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Falgabard is ranked 19,956th in the world and 563rd in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 75.33 on the Human Development Index.
