The Protectorate of Fluoristan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Charles Muhler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.993 billion Fluoristanis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toothopolis. The average income tax rate is 61.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fluoristani economy, worth a remarkable 1,102 trillion molars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,990 molars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fluoristan's national animal is the cavity creep, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Four Noble Tooths.

Fluoristan is ranked 13,841st in the world and 751st in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 331.31 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
