Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Benevolent Stellar Hermitage of Floreria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sybil Kelys Astraea 9cchxhkkeals1177 with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.799 billion Florel are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The minute, socially-minded government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istel Kelia. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Florel economy, worth 113 trillion fleuriss a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 5,452 fleuriss, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, builders across Floreria are blocked up with orders for new public loos, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and government-sanctioned speed mating is rife with Party-sanctioned abuse of power. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Floreria's national animal is the sentient, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reality.

Floreria is ranked 19,438th in the world and 10th in Haiku for Largest Governments, scoring 27.53 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
