The Free Land of Flibblebonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Caretaker with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.49 billion Flibblebonians 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 63%, 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 is ravaged by daily union strikes, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. 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 1st in the South Pacific and 5th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 551 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
