The Free Land of Flintland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 4.773 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 75%, 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.

GP clinics are inundated by patients requesting prescriptions for alcohol, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales. 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 3,346th in The East Pacific and 109,412th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -10 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
