The Glorious Kingdom of Flanderlion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dale Flanderlion with an iron fist, and notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, pith helmet sales, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.741 billion Flanderlionians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flanderlion Fortress. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Flanderlionian economy, worth an astonishing 15,880 trillion denarii 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 847,367 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, parents ask their ten-year-olds for help with their government-mandated book reports, and epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flanderlion's national animal is the Flanderlion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dale Flanderlionianism.

Flanderlion is ranked 257,600th in the world and 7,750th in the Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -29.3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
