The Federation of 180 Flip is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.679 billion 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 91%, 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.

Citizens are regularly shot for parking on the double-yellow line, the space program has been scrapped in order to focus on more terrestrial pursuits, highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, and the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape 180 Flip. 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 3,593rd in Lazarus and 120,916th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -16 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
