The The Rustic Fireplace of Flobos is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Flobos the IVth with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 28.811 billion Flobs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. 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 7,048 trillion Bahahahahahahahahahats 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 244,631 Bahahahahahahahahahats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Books are so highly regarded in Flobos that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, artists are pillars of society, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Flobos's border. 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 169,934th in the world and 5,491st in Balder for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -31.92 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
