The Free Republic of Aflana is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Finlay Rayne with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 5.949 billion Aflanians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newport. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aflanian economy, worth 853 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,403 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aflana's national animal is the red deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Aflanlic.

Aflana is ranked 10,837th in the world and 608th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 89.23 on the Human Development Index.
