The Morally Questionable People of Flibblers is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Oppressive Mighty One with an iron fist, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.647 billion Flibblibians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flibble Central. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, manufacturers are sued for almost anything not covered in their catalogue-sized manuals, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, and a government program is underway to revitalize Flibblers's beaches. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Flibblers's national animal is the Flibbitybobble, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Flaaben.

Flibblers is ranked 80th in Antarctica and 114,367th in the world for Best Weather, with -3,890 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
