The True Divine Empire of Flandarz is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Almighty Lord Flandarz Dragmire with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, vat-grown people, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.835 billion Flandarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragmire's Fortress. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Flandish economy, worth a remarkable 4,499 trillion Flanmires a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 574,304 Flanmires, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, arthritic citizens seem underrepresented at royal meet-and-greets, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flandarz's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dragmirism.

Flandarz is ranked 348th in the world and 1st in Gypsy Lands for Healthiest Citizens, with 43.96 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
