The Free Land of Flintland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.89 billion Flintlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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%, 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.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, and the government seizes all major gold finds. 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 263rd in The East Pacific and 15,073rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 12 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
