The Confederacy of Fleap Tates is a huge, genial nation, notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 456 million Fleap Tatesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grass Valley. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Fleap Tatesian economy, worth 27.9 trillion Potatoes a year, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 61,095 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

A rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown. Fleap Tates's national animal is the Curry, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fleap Tates is ranked 195,129th in the world and 396th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -10.68 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
