The Kingdom of Flingr is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Santiago with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.032 billion Flingrians 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tryopia. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Flingrian economy, worth 915 trillion Driks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,187 Driks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Flingrian citizenship in droves, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the climate agreement has actually increased the volume of hot air in the atmosphere, and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flingr's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Flingr is ranked 634th in the world and 441st in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 189 Valid Endorsements.
