The Democratic-Atheist Republic of Flohovistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arch-President Desmond Shephard with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.713 billion Flohovistani have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flohovia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 88.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Flohovistani economy, worth 166 trillion Ankhs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 97,268 Ankhs, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, polychromatic seas of leaves blanket the ground while sewers and drain pipes are clogged by their detritus, dandruff and athlete's foot are seen as signs of physical beauty, and the tawdry celebrity gossip section has moved to the front page of most newspapers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flohovistan's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Shrek.

Flohovistan is ranked 188,690th in the world and 119th in Caer Sidi for Most Extreme, scoring 10.14 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
