The Morally Questionable People of Flibblers is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Oppressive Mighty One with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.659 billion Flibblibians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flibble Central. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Flibblersian economy, worth an astonishing 22,973 trillion Flaabens 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 830,615 Flaabens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, it's illegal to blow things up, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Flibblers's national animal is the Flibbitybobble, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Flibblers is ranked 155,099th in the world and 45th in Antarctica for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 17.36 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
