The Empire of Flyingfox is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.783 billion Flyingfoxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 20.2%.

The strong Flyingfoxian economy, worth 211 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 55,788 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is giving peace a chance, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force. Flyingfox's national animal is the horse.

Flyingfox is ranked 163,220th in the world and 113th in The Socialist Syndicalist Union for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 46.63 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
