The Federal Kingdom of Faircliff is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King-Emperor Haydn IV with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.355 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 77.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Faircliffian economy, worth 712 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 112,067 Lokpas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, this year's comedy award has left mothers-in-law seething, and the arms industry is strictly regulated. 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 9,464th in the world and 515th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 120.42 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
