The Galactic Empire of Flarbinia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Emperor Vladimir Novgorod IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.065 billion Flarbinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, 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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Flarbinian economy, worth an astonishing 13,264 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 601,158 Shark'towels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,166,113 per year while the poor average 119,301, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards, serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, concussed Hellhoundball players cannot remember their lineup position, and heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Flarbinia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 575th in the world and 17th in Lazarus for Most Patriotic, with 106.34 flags saluted per person per day.
