The Free Land of Flintland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.975 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 80%. 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.

Almost all of Flintland's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. 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 3,792nd in The East Pacific and 112,561st in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -46 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
