The Queen of The Faeries is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Fairy Queen with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.769 billion Faeries enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, although Public Transport, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Fairy Ring. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Faerie economy, worth 224 trillion Gingerbread Cakes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is 14,236 Gingerbread Cakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", and a chain of pubs that cater solely to children has recently been unveiled. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Faeries's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Faeries is ranked 71,802nd in the world and 2nd in Devon for Highest Economic Output, with 224 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
