Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Land of Flibblebonia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Caretaker with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.74 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.

The minute, socially-minded, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flibblebonium. The average income tax rate is 2.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Flibblarian economy, worth 112 trillion silentfarts a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 6,749 silentfarts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Flibblebonia's national animal is the ocelot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flibblebonia is ranked 4,649th in the South Pacific and 117,872nd in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring -169.013 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
