Demographic Inner metropolitan

The Division of Flinders is a Craftian federal division in the state of Jebsten. It was created in 1986, and was first contested at the inaugural federal election in 1986. Flinders is a metropolitan division covering the central business district and inner suburbs of the city of Calmia on Jebsten's North Coast. It is named after Matt Flinders (1880–1954), a notable Craftian democracy activist who was held as a political prisoner in the Miners Republic for a period of 11 years from 1914 to 1925. Flinders called Calmia his hometown and lived there for most of his life.

The sitting member, since the 2050 by-election, is Sue Menjivar, a member of the National United Party.

History

Flinders covers the northern half of Calmia, putting it in United heartland. Calmia is one of the few regional cities where United does particularly well, thanks to its working-class character. Flinders has never been held by the Craftian Conservative Party and has only been lost to another party – the Craftian Reform Party – once, in 2028. The Conservatives currently need a 11.35% swing to win it.
