Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.834 billion Badasses enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petalopia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Badass economy, worth an astonishing 22,473 trillion petals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 837,490 petals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,917,054 per year while the poor average 20,833, a ratio of 332 to 1.

All recreational drugs are legal, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Petalopia, and many junior high school teachers minor in midwifery. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Little Flowers's national animal is the honey bee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moghdom.

Little Flowers is ranked 46th in Eladen and 128,048th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -585 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
