Storyline

Deputy Mayor Laura Fitzgerald is informed that the town of Flatby on the coast of England has never actually been conquered. The town wasn't even in the Domesday Book as the area was flooded when the King's survey came to visit. Also, there has never been any official incorporation of Flatby into any country. It follows that Flatby was never officially annexed into the United Kingdom. Taking advantage of the situation, Laura rallies the townsfolk to declare Flatby an independent state, much to the displeasure of the Government in London.

Wonderful series
17 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this series! It actually inspires me, although it is primarily intended to be a comedy and entertainment. What a wonderful premise! Just try to imagine yourself as a Flatbyan, and think how you would love your new country to be run! The characters are realistic, I think, with some allowance for comedic expression and laughable situations. The producers chose perfect actors to portray the various residents, especially members of the town council (or whatever the ruling board members choose to call themselves). I think "A Perfect State" is an exceptionally witty satire about local and international politics, such as I have rarely seen portrayed elsewhere. I hope I can find out how to purchase a copy of this wonderful series! Please write more episodes!
