The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.741 billion E L Fs enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is mainly concerned with Defence, although Commerce and Public Transport are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petalopia. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

It's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles, the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Little Flowers's national animal is the honey bee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Moghdom, and its currency is the petal.

Little Flowers is ranked 35th in Eladen and 112,252nd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -146 on the Enoch Index.
