The Free Land of Flibblebonia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Caretaker with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.632 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.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare 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 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Flibblarian economy, worth 152 trillion silentfarts a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 9,734 silentfarts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. Crime is totally unknown. Flibblebonia's national animal is the ocelot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Flibblebonia is ranked 4,166th in the South Pacific and 114,737th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -426 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
