The Free Land of Fluggetry is a very large, genial nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 167 million Fluggetrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Fluggetryian economy, worth 4.90 trillion Fluggets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 29,370 Fluggets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fluggetry's national animal is the Elephant Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Fluggetry is ranked 86,369th in the world and 911th in Europeia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 26,576.36 Standard Monetary Units.
