The Constitutional Monarchy of Flatwood is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lucille Clay with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.174 billion Flatwoodians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byrneston. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Flatwoodian economy, worth 118 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,677 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, the government is avowedly secular, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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, and its national religion is The Church of Flatwood.

Flatwood is ranked 6,866th in the world and 22nd in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,928.5 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
