The Glorious Kingdom of Flanderlion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dale Flanderlion with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.062 billion Flanderlionians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flanderlion Fortress. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Flanderlionian economy, worth an astonishing 12,406 trillion denarii a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 772,418 denarii, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals are thrown to the Flanderlions to repay their debt to society, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Flanderlion Fortress make great practice for foreign snipers, foreign governments regularly accuse the Flanderlionian military of war crimes, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flanderlion's national animal is the Flanderlion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dale Flanderlionianism.

Flanderlion is ranked 33,206th in the world and 728th in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 32.34 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
