The Holy guacamole of Flobos is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Flobos the IVth with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 33.108 billion Flobs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manhole. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Flobosian economy, worth a remarkable 8,510 trillion Five quarters of a pence a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 257,050 Five quarters of a pence, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and sports fans complain that cricket tests now last an unbearable ten days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flobos's national animal is the Kitten of God, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Working hard and hardly working.

Flobos is ranked 358th in the world and 11th in Lazarus for Largest Governments, scoring 78.43 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
