The Republic of Flurf is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lord Flurf with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.234 billion Flurfians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flurf City. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Flurfian economy, worth 574 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,716 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flurf's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flurf is ranked 29,432nd in the world and 1,546th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 8.22 bananas ingested per day.
