The Free Land of Flintland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stacks Era with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.179 billion Flintlandians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flintland City. The average income tax rate is 28.5%.

The powerhouse Flintlandian economy, worth 599 trillion boozers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 83,473 boozers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Flintland's national animal is the emu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is religion.

Flintland is ranked 93,498th in the world and 14th in Integrated Allied States for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.06 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
