The Democratic Republic of Falloa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Henry Popkin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.148 billion Falloans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dove City. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Falloan economy, worth 115 trillion Fallas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,530 Fallas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Falloa's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Falloa is ranked 155,113th in the world and 256th in Anteria for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 72.69 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
