The Democratic-Atheist Republic of Flohovistan is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arch-President Desmond Shephard with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 915 million Flohovistani have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flohovia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Flohovistani economy, worth 65.9 trillion Ankhs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 72,071 Ankhs, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, and white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flohovistan's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flohovistan is ranked 16,558th in the world and 21st in Refugia for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,193.12 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
