OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Confederated Crown Republics of Florenzia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Rector Alessandro Tranghetti with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 22.174 billion Florenzians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, Florenzia successfully hosted the The Heartland Olympics, military spending is on the increase, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. 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 3rd in The Heartland and 194th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 80 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
