The Free Land of Flibblebonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Caretaker with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.022 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.

Gambling addicts regularly lose their families' nest eggs at Native Flibblarian casinos, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and all-natural foods are becoming a major fad. 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 978th in the South Pacific and 24,937th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 85 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
