The Federal Kingdom of Faircliff is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King-Emperor Haydn IV with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.399 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 78.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Faircliffian economy, worth 716 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 112,003 Lokpas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 197,486th in the world and 9,571st in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.92 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
