The United Nation of Flashboom is a huge, genial nation, ruled by President Harmony with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 895 million Flashboomians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flashboom HQ. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Flashboomian economy, worth 122 trillion Dragon balls a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 136,845 Dragon balls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Much of Flashboom's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, religious figures have been banned from public holidays to make them more multicultural, and the government has enacted freedom of information. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Flashboom's national animal is the Night Fury, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flashboom is ranked 156,772nd in the world and 209th in Anteria for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 320.97 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
