The Free Land of Flintland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.319 billion Flintlandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 86%, 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.

Nudity is frowned upon, loans are available for students from poor families, an enormous health awareness programme is underway, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime 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 4,224th in The East Pacific and 120,928th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
