The Democratic Republic of Flasankia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Flasankian Governance Department with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.682 billion Flasankians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flasankia City. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Flasankian economy, worth 287 trillion Flasankian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 170,981 Flasankian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Mollycoddled youths run the country, sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, Flasankia City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, and a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's. Crime is totally unknown. Flasankia's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Scientific Logic.

Flasankia is ranked 12,542nd in the world and 683rd in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 81.7 quips per hour.
