The Federal Kingdom of Faircliff is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King-Emperor Haydn IV with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.406 billion Faircliffians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Willowhurst. The average income tax rate is 78.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Faircliffian economy, worth 718 trillion Lokpas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,136 Lokpas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Faircliff to be bombproof, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Faircliff's national animal is the Barbary lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Faircliff is ranked 126,776th in the world and 5,661st in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.89 on the Rand Index.
