The Galactic Empire of Flarbinia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Emperor Vladimir Novgorod IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.821 billion Flarbinians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deroth Ungol. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Flarbinian economy, worth an astonishing 11,658 trillion Shark'towels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 588,177 Shark'towels, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,494,591 per year while the poor average 45,454, a ratio of 76.9 to 1.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, only the fast and the furious are brave enough to drive, and royals are always ready with their diamond-encrusted toilet plungers in case a royal flush doesn't work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flarbinia's national animal is the Hellhound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church Of Crulmoxius.

Flarbinia is ranked 395th in the world and 15th in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 83.57 Obesity Rate.
