The Confederated Crown Republics of Florenzia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rector Alessandro Tranghetti with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 23.591 billion Florenzians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fiorentina. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Florenzian economy, worth an astonishing 11,008 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 466,625 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.
Euthanasia is legal, Florenzia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and citizens must pay to enjoy Florenzia's pristine beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Florenzia's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
