The Free Land of Flintland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.102 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.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, graffiti graces every city's streets, the nation is completely gun-free, and the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security. 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 172nd in The East Pacific and 19,471st in the world for Largest Populations, with 5,102 Capita (millions).
