The United Kingdom of Flench is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 256 million Flenchians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.7%.

The thriving Flenchian economy, worth 24.2 trillion Rubis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,433 Rubis, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, the nation's ballot sheets often contain ten-thousand word manifestos for each party, polygamy is legal, and the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flench's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flench is ranked 58,828th in the world and 2,265th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 56.22 on the Rand Index.
