The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 24.972 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.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat. 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 33rd in Eladen and 112,499th in the world for Safest, scoring -8,069 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
