The Community of Flera is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.133 billion Flerans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Fleran economy, worth 359 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 114,832 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Contestants on Flera's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flera's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flera is ranked 6,198th in the world and 298th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 90.78 on the Human Development Index.
