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 sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 25.855 billion Badasses 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business 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 21,528 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, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 832,673 petals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,626,852 per year while the poor average 45,569, a ratio of 123 to 1.

All new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. 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 7th in Eladen and 479th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 60 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
