The Kingdom of Flandronia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.919 billion Flandronians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gent. The average income tax rate is 51.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Flandronian economy, worth 147 trillion Flandrons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,848 Flandrons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

All footpaths have tollbooths, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flandronia's national animal is the Grey Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flandronia is ranked 57,537th in the world and 77th in Thaecia for Rudest Citizens, with 64.78 Insults Per Minute.
