The Democracy of Flecatya is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by General Secretary Krylovas with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, flagrant waste-dumping, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.98 billion Flecatyans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riga. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Flecatyan economy, worth a remarkable 3,960 trillion Złoties a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 441,027 Złoties, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,958,281 per year while the poor average 61,924, a ratio of 31.6 to 1.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, beat cops aren't named for the territory they patrol, people all over Flecatya are dying of 'Mad White-tailed Eagle Disease', and nations across the world are quick to praise General Secretary Krylovas's good looks and intellectual prowess. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Flecatya's national animal is the White-tailed eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Flecatya is ranked 44,766th in the world and 19th in Pax Britannia for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
