The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.906 billion E L Fs are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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 secondary priorities. 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.

Little Flowers's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, Little Flowers-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and political activists are routinely executed. 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 1st in Eladen and 7th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 5,862 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
