The Galactic Empire of Flarbinia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Emperor Vladimir Novgorod IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, avowedly heterosexual populace, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.88 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deroth Ungol. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Flarbinian economy, worth a remarkable 9,782 trillion Shark'towels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 547,099 Shark'towels, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,547,629 per year while the poor average 70,466, a ratio of 36.2 to 1.

Tardiness has increased after carpooling was classified as a criminal offense, looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, citizens who use the word "Violet" incorrectly find their WhoTube content taken down, and adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 209,093rd in the world and 7,633rd in Lazarus for Longest Average Lifespans, with 25.68 Years.
