The Free Land of Fluggetry is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 149 million Fluggetrians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Fluggetryian economy, worth 4.52 trillion Fluggets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,303 Fluggets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nothing gets the party jumping like Leader specifying how high, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. 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 186,595th in the world and 1,459th in Europeia for Most Average, scoring 27.09 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
