The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.28 billion E L Fs are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 secondary priorities. 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.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, and a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery. 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 3rd in Eladen and 195th in the world for Largest Populations, with 25,280 Capita (millions).
