The Federation of 180 Flip is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 6.536 billion, 5.569 billion of whom are zombies, 180 Flipians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, 180 Flip's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and gambling is outlawed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 180 Flip's national animal is the Flip, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the 180.

180 Flip is ranked 3,657th in Lazarus and 114,630th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -27 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

180 Flip is currently considering its options.
