The Federation of Freefall Tribes is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 622 million Freefallians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hosa Nagara. The average income tax rate is 66.3%.

The all-consuming Freefallian economy, worth 56.8 trillion E-Denariis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 91,363 E-Denariis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, the love has gone in Freefall Tribes, and it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Freefall Tribes's national animal is the Bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Freefall Tribes is ranked 230,213th in the world and 9,524th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 9.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
