The True Divine Empire of Flandarz is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Almighty Lord Flandarz Dragmire with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.477 billion Flandarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragmire's Fortress. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Flandish economy, worth a remarkable 3,028 trillion Flanmires a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 467,593 Flanmires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bald-headed monks sit around the National Meditation Park looking smugly content, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, small shoes often wash up on the beach, and students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flandarz's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dragmirism.

Flandarz is ranked 156,638th in the world and 27th in Gypsy Lands for Most Pro-Market, scoring -84.56 on the Rand Index.
