The Free Land of Flintland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.98 billion 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 81%, 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.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the arms industry is strictly regulated, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and the government pours millions of boozers into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 4,446th in The East Pacific and 121,025th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -1,342.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
