The NationStates Flag Maker of Flag Makeria is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Flag Maker Number 1 with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.521 billion Flag Makers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flag Makers Union. The average income tax rate is 6.7%.

The Flag Maker economy, worth 179 trillion Flags a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,048 Flags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Flag Makeria's national animal is the falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Vexillologism.

Flag Makeria is ranked 4,872nd in the world and 4th in Lasagna for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,533.95 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
