The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.068 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.

Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. 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 9th in Eladen and 5,171st in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 179 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
