OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Land of Flibblebonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Caretaker with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.395 billion Flibbles are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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 73%, 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.

Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, euthanasia is legal, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and the government funds large training centres to turn ocelots into functioning members of society. 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 4,295th in the South Pacific and 117,608th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -43 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
