Thomas Peter Falkner (born 2 April 1980; aged 40 as of 2020) is a Mascyllary politician and former school supervisor currently serving as Prime Minister of the Crowned Republic of Mascylla and leader of the Rehunion since 2016. He served as Minister of the Realm from 2010 to 2016 before he was elected. He is the second youngest Mascyllary Prime Minister ever elected, after Moritz von Purbell. Ideologically, he identifies himself as "a one-nation conservative with liberal tendencies".

Falkner grew up in Bahldorf and attended Sankt Huch's College, Wilhelmshagen. After graduating with an bachelor of education degree, he worked as a school supervisor in Königsreh. From 1977 until 1983, he worked for the Great Bank of Mascylla, and from 1985 until 1997 at the Association for Payment Clearing Services, also serving as a councillor for Dornenfeld in Merntohn. After unsuccessful attempts to be elected to the Reichsrat in 1992 and 1994, he was elected as the member of the Reichsrat for Meindenhold in the 1997 general election.

After the formation of a coalition government following the 2010 general election, Falkner was appointed Minister of the Realm, giving up the latter role in 2012. He was reappointed after the Centre victory in the 2015 general election. During his tenure he pursued reform of law enforcement, implemented a softer line on drugs policy including the legalisation of marijuana, oversaw the introduction of elected Police and Crime Commissioners, the creation of the National Crime Agency and brought in fewer restrictions on immigration. Following Folln's resignation and retreat from politics, Falkner won the leadership by a landslide during the election in April 2016, becoming the nineteenth male Prime Minister.
