Upper Flanders

Population347 million


The Commonwealth of Upper Flanders is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 347 million Upper Flandersians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.2%.

The Upper Flandersian economy, worth 21.7 trillion Flanders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,494 Flanders, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Flanders each year, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and mechanics are often exhausted by their work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upper Flanders's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Upper Flanders is ranked 109,460th in the world and 4,659th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.16 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
