The Democratic Republic of Flamingo says gwagwa is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 174 million Flamingo says gwagwans 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 8.6%.

The strong Flamingo says gwagwan economy, worth 8.38 trillion flamingo feathers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 48,161 flamingo feathers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Flamingo says gwagwa's national animal is the Dodo birds, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Flamingo says gwagwa is ranked 32,615th in the world and 23rd in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,447.05 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
