The True Divine Empire of Flandarz is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Almighty Lord Flandarz Dragmire with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.109 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, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda. 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 7,504 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 675,520 Flanmires, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", political activists are routinely executed, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 255,052nd in the world and 39th in Gypsy Lands for Most Cultured, scoring -70 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
