The Galactic Empire of Flarbinia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Emperor Vladimir Novgorod IV with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.44 billion Flarbinians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, with Defense and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deroth Ungol. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Flarbinian economy, worth a remarkable 8,209 trillion Shark'towels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 568,518 Shark'towels, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and preservative-laden Flarbinian cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flarbinia's national animal is the Hellhound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church Of Crulmoxius.

Flarbinia is ranked 99th in the world and 3rd in Lazarus for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 135,150.94 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
