The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.469 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 concentrates mainly on 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.

Terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, Max Barry is this year's Miss Little Flowers, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 40th in Eladen and 120,615th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -988 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
