The Anime Reality Empire of Flardania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arata Kasuga with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.058 billion Flardanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized 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 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirishinan economy, worth a remarkable 2,150 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 152,982 Weidais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The death penalty has been reintroduced, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. 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 117,948th in the world and 9th in Atlas for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.22 on the Rand Index.
