The Free Land of Flintland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.472 billion Flintlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flintland City. The average income tax rate is 87%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. Flintland's national animal is the emu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is religion, and its currency is the boozer.

Flintland is ranked 4,205th in The East Pacific and 116,834th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -25 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
