The Free Land of Flintland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.558 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 74%. 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 government is forced to pander to the will of every fruitcake politician, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest emu hunting institutions, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and priests are being drafted by the church load. 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 3,220th in The East Pacific and 102,327th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -108 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
