The Festering Cesspool of Flatulati Incontinentia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Rastus Odinga Odinga XXXVII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.242 billion Flatulati Incontinentians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Upper Fährtburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Flatulati Incontinentian economy, worth a remarkable 2,331 trillion Pugnacious Fährts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,224 Pugnacious Fährts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 450,823 per year while the poor average 30,199, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Flatulati Incontinentia, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and glamping Flatulati Incontinentians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flatulati Incontinentia's national animal is the Cyclops Calf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Odinganism.

Flatulati Incontinentia is ranked 108,845th in the world and 3,918th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 544.63 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
