The Morally Questionable People of Flibblers is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Oppressive Mighty One with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.277 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.

Guns are banned, prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, teenage fathers are forced to join the army, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. 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 62nd in Antarctica and 112,134th in the world for Best Weather, with -3,759 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
