The Federal Kingdom of Faircliff is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King-Emperor Haydn IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.803 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 Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Willowhurst. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Faircliffian economy, worth 489 trillion Lokpas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,977 Lokpas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

When it comes to WMDs Faircliff has declared that the only winning move is not to play, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best. 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 5,309th in the world and 263rd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,549.41 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
