Location: Vlaanderen

Regional Influence: Squire


The Flanders of Flemings is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Lion of Flanders with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.267 billion Flemingsians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The large, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and International Aid are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bruges. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.9%.

The thriving Flemingsian economy, worth 931 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 57,257 Euros, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 297,535 per year while the poor average 5,957, a ratio of 49.9 to 1.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flemings's national animal is the lion and its national religion is Flemingism.

Flemings is ranked 177,968th in the world and 97th in Vlaanderen for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 844.06 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
