The Moderately Oppressed Peoples of Flurbleland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Oswald the Slightly Inconvenient with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.136 billion Flurblelandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sub-Fweebleblargh. The average income tax rate is 20.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Flurblelandian economy, worth 183 trillion Skurglegloops a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 161,459 Skurglegloops, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Flurbleland, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Flurbleland's national animal is the Slightly Blue Parrotfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Antipathy.

Flurbleland is ranked 3,250th in the world and 106th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 26.5 crimes per hour.
