The United Provinces of Flippica is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Nommiticus with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.529 billion Flippicans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castelias. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Flippican economy, worth a remarkable 1,384 trillion Emeralds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 212,126 Emeralds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, builders across Flippica are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the Liberal Progressive and Progressive Liberal parties swear that they have totally different ideologies, and foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Castelias Unicorns' triumph against long odds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Flippica's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flippica is ranked 909th in the world and 614th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 154 Valid Endorsements.
