The The Rustic Fireplace of Flobos is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Flobos the IVth with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 29.519 billion Flobs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manhole. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Flobosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,448 trillion Bahahahahahahahahahats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 252,339 Bahahahahahahahahahats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flobos's national animal is the Kitten of God, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Working hard and hardly working.

Flobos is ranked 333rd in the world and 9th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 16,149.64 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
