The Free Land of Flintland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.114 billion Flintlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 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.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, the government has enacted freedom of information, and all news sources are under strict government control. 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 124th in The East Pacific and 7,448th in the world for Best Weather, with 138 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
