The Morally Questionable People of Flibblers is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Oppressive Mighty One with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 28.231 billion Flibblibians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flibble Central. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Flibblersian economy, worth an astonishing 24,007 trillion Flaabens 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 Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 a breathtaking 850,410 Flaabens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion. 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. Flibblers's national animal is the Flibbitybobble, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Flibblers is ranked 12th in the world and 1st in Antarctica for Longest Average Lifespans, with 103.92 Years.
