The Glorious Kingdom of Flanderlion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dale Flanderlion with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.814 billion Flanderlionians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flanderlion Fortress. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Flanderlionian economy, worth an astonishing 11,003 trillion denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 742,759 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Flanderlionian military, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flanderlion's national animal is the Flanderlion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dale Flanderlionianism.

Flanderlion is ranked 2,121st in the world and 51st in the Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 216.99 Insults Per Minute.
