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 museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.01 billion Flarbinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 an astonishing 13,475 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 extensive. Average income is a breathtaking 612,263 Shark'towels, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Edutainment video games are taking Flarbinia's students to the next level, snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, and it is illegal to liberate slaves. 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 270,954th in the world and 7,472nd in Lazarus for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.53 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
