The United Kingdom of Flench is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 291 million Flenchians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Flenchian economy, worth 26.5 trillion Rubis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 90,935 Rubis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, the nation's ballot sheets often contain ten-thousand word manifestos for each party, polygamy is legal, and the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flench's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flench is ranked 107,613th in the world and 4,123rd in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 547.07 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
