The Oppressed Peoples of Flap is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its burgeoning trout population. The cynical population of 15.177 billion Flapians 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 49.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Flapian economy, worth 310 trillion Dimes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 20,483 Dimes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flap's national animal is the trout.

Flap is ranked 153,427th in the world and 113th in belgium for Most Pro-Market, scoring 25 on the Rand Index.
