The Taisuist Republic of Flardania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sung-gi Na with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.467 billion Kirishinans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heiwa. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirishinan economy, worth a remarkable 2,839 trillion Weidais a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,875 Weidais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flardania's national animal is the Kitsune, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Onjōism.

Flardania is ranked 22,354th in the world and 1,306th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 238.19 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
