The Democratic Anarchy of Falconias Prime is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.494 billion Falconias Primeans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The very strong Falconias Primean economy, worth a remarkable 1,981 trillion sapphires a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 96,684 sapphires, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 594,774 per year while the poor average 6,854, a ratio of 86.8 to 1.

Homeless people are frequently charged with trespassing on public property, the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen, the entire country is an urban wasteland as the well-to-do commute from space (Falconias Prime has found 1 easter egg), and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Falconias Prime's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Falconias Prime is ranked 31,464th in the world and 22nd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 159.42 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
