A people who live on top of Flathead Mountain in the far northwest corner of the Gillikin Country. Their heads are flat, appearing to be cut off just above the eyes and ears. They have no hair on the top of their heads, they have large, bright deep violet eyes, their ears stick out, and they have small stubby noses. They wear metallic clothing made from small thin discs of tin, iron, and silver wired together. Because of the shape of their heads they have no room for brains, therefore, each Flathead carries their brains in a can. There are 101 Flatheads, and each is a dictator of something or other. Their ruler is called the Supreme Dictator.

First appears in: Glinda of Oz
