The Confederated Crown Republics of Florenzia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Rector Alessandro Tranghetti with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 21.785 billion Florenzians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fiorentina. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Rector Alessandro Tranghetti's bedroom, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Fiorentina Times is sold out, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Florenzia's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Crown.

Florenzia is ranked 6th in The Heartland and 590th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 185 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
