The Free Land of Flibblebonia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Caretaker with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.078 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 67%, 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 has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, eminent domain has been abolished, and children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies. 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 33rd in the South Pacific and 2,101st in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 179 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
