The Free Land of Flintland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 4.601 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 Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flintland City. The average income tax rate is 74%. 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.

Flintland City spends billions upgrading public transport, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, and protesters against the government are hanged as a warning to others. 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 651st in The East Pacific and 23,665th in the world for Most Average, scoring 1,151 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
