The Glorious Kingdom of Flanderlion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dale Flanderlion with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.245 billion Flanderlionians 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 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flanderlion Fortress. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Flanderlionian economy, worth an astonishing 11,499 trillion denarii 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 a breathtaking 754,332 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, the only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, and homes have been banned from having any more than one wheel. 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 200,645th in the world and 5,669th in the Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 14.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
