Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Morally Questionable People of Flibblers is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Oppressive Mighty One with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.828 billion Flibblibians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flibble Central. The income tax rate is 100%.

The powerhouse Flibblersian economy, worth an astonishing 15,476 trillion Flaabens a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is a breathtaking 677,970 Flaabens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance. 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 139,398th in the world and 42nd in Antarctica for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -8.37 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
