The Frolicking Empire of Flabla the Second is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 1.217 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mongoose. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising fourteen-year-old boys selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Mongoose. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flabla the Second's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Grass Blade.
