The United Kingdom of Flench is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 280 million Flenchians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 47.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Flenchian economy, worth 25.4 trillion Rubis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 90,826 Rubis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, the nation's ballot sheets often contain ten-thousand word manifestos for each party, polygamy is legal, and the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flench's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flench is ranked 177,750th in the world and 7,286th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 47.56 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
