The Anime Reality Empire of Flardania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arata Kasuga with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.772 billion Flardanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirishinan economy, worth a remarkable 2,259 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 139,528th in the world and 5th in Atlas for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -137.63 on the Hayek Index.
