The Free Land of Flibblebonia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Caretaker with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 13.893 billion 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. The average income tax rate is 55%, 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.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. 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 4,702nd in the South Pacific and 123,022nd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -109 Whatever.
