The Democratic Republic of Falafelandia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 326 million Falafels love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 34.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Falafelandian economy, worth 13.8 trillion Shekels a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,343 Shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes all major gold finds, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, and Falafelandia has designated Jerusalem as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Falafelandia's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Falafelandia is ranked 82,058th in the world and 2nd in Eretz Israel for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.66 percentage of bribes refused.
