The Federated Principality of Fluvannia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Crown Prince Michael with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.519 billion Fluvannians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oshkosh. The average income tax rate is 47.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Fluvannian economy, worth a remarkable 1,740 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 182,861 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

People's charity begins and ends at home, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, and students do more community service than homework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fluvannia's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fluvannia is ranked 257,359th in the world and 269th in Anteria for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.44 bananas ingested per day.
