The Glorious Kingdom of Flanderlion is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dale Flanderlion with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, zero percent divorce rate, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.233 billion Flanderlionians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flanderlion Fortress. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Flanderlionian economy, worth an astonishing 13,913 trillion denarii a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 807,359 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, citizens are only allowed to view government-approved TV shows, and government ministers have eclectic tastes in curtains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flanderlion's national animal is the Flanderlion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dale Flanderlionianism.

Flanderlion is ranked 1,272nd in the world and 28th in the Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 297.73 insults per minute.
