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. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.778 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.

Morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. 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 67th in Antarctica and 112,968th in the world for Best Weather, with -3,964 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
