The Free Land of Flibblebonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Caretaker with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.818 billion Flibbles love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Defence and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flibblebonium. The average income tax rate is 68%, 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.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, students cut up leftover silentfarts during Arts and Crafts, and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime is totally unknown. Flibblebonia's national animal is the ocelot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the silentfart.

Flibblebonia is ranked 522nd in the South Pacific and 25,652nd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 9 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
