The Federation of 180 Flip is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.323 billion 180 Flipians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 92%, 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.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to 180 Flip's border, piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, membership in the state-owned Church of 180 Flip is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. 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 1st in Baldr and 4,124th in the world for Best Weather, with 214 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
