The Morally Questionable People of Flibblers is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Oppressive Mighty One with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 15.69 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt 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.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, guns are banned, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun. 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 3rd in Antarctica and 605th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 17 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
