The Constitutional Monarchy of Flatwood is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 298 million Flatwoodians, 297 million of whom are zombies, have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byrneston. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Flatwoodian economy, worth 29.1 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,060 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flatwood's national animal is the cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flatwood is ranked 207,222nd in the world and 106th in The Western Isles for Most Avoided, scoring 0.59 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
