The Reconquista Propagator of The South Falls is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister August Johnson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.93 billion South Fallsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fallsatia. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Fallsian economy, worth 873 trillion South Fallsian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,289 South Fallsian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Prime Minister August Johnson's wardrobe, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Fallsatia" t-shirts. Crime is totally unknown. The South Falls's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The South Falls is ranked 6,124th in the world and 360th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.59 on the Human Development Index.
