The United Provinces of Flippica is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Nommiticus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.68 billion Flippicans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castelias. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Flippican economy, worth a remarkable 1,198 trillion Emeralds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 211,080 Emeralds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Flippica's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flippica is ranked 168,940th in the world and 9,032nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -896.01 on the Hayek Index.
