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 barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.443 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 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.

Reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance. 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 74th in Antarctica and 111,460th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -296 Whatever.
