The United Provinces of Flippica is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Nommiticus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.834 billion Flippicans 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castelias. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Flippican economy, worth a remarkable 1,233 trillion Emeralds 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 211,428 Emeralds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Flippica's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flippica is ranked 157,271st in the world and 7,995th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18.6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
