The Commonwealth of Fallooplesburg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Erika von Mairel with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 67 million Faloplins are ruled by a mostly-benevolent monarch, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dufarstiato. The average income tax rate is 28.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The fairly struggling Faloplin economy, worth 1.49 trillion Verres a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,346 Verres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

History (Current WIP)
2 BC-120 AD: Formation
In around 2 BC the city of Vrelin's leader, Rolf Tatlkervor, declared himself the King of Vrelia. Not many people took it very seriously, as not much changed about the way of life in Vrelin. People commonly migrated across the Faloplin Peninsula to get away from the rules of Vrelin. But things in Vrelin did eventually change, King Rolf raised a military and large walls around the city. The walls are now known as the Inner City of Vrelin as the city kept expanding and adding new walls. As Vrelin expanded, in 84 AD Rolf Tatlkervor II offered farmers free housing in the Outer City if they gave 20% of their harvest to the government. Hundreds accepted the deal and it even caused some of the Vrelians across the Faloplin Peninsula to come back to Vrelin. The Vrelian Kingdom had become a major power in southwest Thrismari, and only continued to prosper into the second century.
121-544: Vrelian Republic
545-752: Faloplin Conquest
753-842: The Fall
843-1091: The Dark Age
After the fall of the Vrelian empirem during the mid-800s the richest, most powerful families in what would become Fallooplesburg herded their local citizens together and created several small monarchies known as Zæntoms (the Faloplin word for city-state) to try and take advantage of the political instability. The Families were the Mairels, Ailmirs, Steigers, Jevines, Ledods, Aegirs, Orins, and Annecis. They each had their own small state and would trade and fight occasionally. In the early 900s the Jevines declared war on the Orins and after a couple of years of warfare annexed them, the Orins were banished and they fled to Ailmir territory. In the late 900s Anneci territory was becoming increasingly unstable, peasants were unhappy with the Anneci family in their territory and attempted a coup. The family was able to flee and seeming disappeared for a few years until they were found reporting the discovery of Deln upon which they founded the city of Dufarstiato, which later became the capital of Fallooplesburg and is still the largest city in Fallooplesburg. The Steigers later invaded the Anneci's land a few months after they left and the citizens failed to make a new leader.
In the early 1000s, The idea of Fallooplesburg being divided into Zæntoms was becoming increasingly unpopular with everyone from the poorest peasants to even most leaders of the Zæntoms saying that Fallooplesburg should be united. And so mass conquering commenced and war raged on in Fallooplesburg for a couple of decades until it was decided to create the house system. Each of the families were delegated a piece of land, except for the Orins and Annecis. The only problem was they didn't know how to decide who gets to lead, after months of arguing they finally agreed upon constitutional monarchy, and so it's been since 1091.
1092-1399: The Golden Age
In 1094 a man named Clemens Stöcker appeared in Dufarstiato, he began preaching a religion known as Usklontin the pagan religion from before the days of the Vrelian Empire. A few people started following him and his word spread around the country. After awhile of Clemens gaining popularity and followers, the government decided to kick him and his followers in Dufarstiato out. He made it all the way out to Athbet, the capital of House Mairel. in 1096 he married Isabel von Mairel and became Clemens von Mairel. In 1097 he won the election and took the crown in 1105. His first act as king was to rename Athbet to Clemency.
With Clemens on the throne this began his Usklontinization of Fallooplesburg. The basic premise of Usklontin is that everyone has a purpose and you keep getting reincarnated until you achieve your purpose where once you do you'll go to the Usklontin equivalent of heaven. This lead to a lot of things becoming legalized and illegalized in Fallooplesburg slavery was outlawed and same-sex marriage was legalized. Author and artists that impressed Clemens got extra publicity leading to some of the most famous and best works of art and literature in Fallooplesburg. Before Clemens died in 1153 he started writing up an idea for a Parliament the idea was written on the basis that one person couldn't lead on their own and having an extra group of people to write new laws and help make decisions. Even over 850 years after Clemens' death his policies remain in place even though Usklontin has fallen into a minor religion in the country as Christianity still holds strong.
The Faloplin monarch after Clemens, Queen Michelle von Ailmir, took this idea and established the Parliament. A body of 650 Cenihenkins, that is an advisory body to the monarch, a legislature, and if necessary an emergency monarch. This goes on for a couple of centuries where monarchs promote individuality and the arts until Jacinto von Steiger decides that isolation is the best way to grow.

The Third Faloplin Civil War was started when the winning candidate of the September 2020 election, Lionel von Jevine. Murdered the incumbent King Noah von Ailmir to claim the throne. Which launched the Jevine Pact consisting of Houses Jevine, Ledod, and Aegir into war with the Coalition of Fallooplesburg consisting of Houses Mairel, Ailmir, and Steiger. After several months of warfare the Third Faloplin Civil War came to a close.
This resulted in the execution of the Jevine family and the exile of the Ledod and Aegir families. And the reinstation of House Orin and House Anneci. As well as Erika von Mairel taking the throne in December of 2020 as the runner-up in the September 2020 election.

The Faloplin legal system is run by the Parliament as the legislators they'd know how the law should be followed. Most cases don't make it to trial and are delegated to private mediators to avoid wasting the Parliament's time. Only serious criminal cases are brought in front of the Parliament, if a case is deemed too important for the Parliament they go to the Föctsrichts or the Supreme Judges. The Föctsrichts are the best judges in Fallooplesburg and bring justice to the greatest criminals in Fallooplesburg the Parliament deals with thefts and murder but the Föctsrichts deal with war criminals, traitors who've committed treason, serial killers, and terrorists.
