Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.379 billion Badasses enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. 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 21,917 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, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 830,853 petals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,055,670 per year while the poor average 4,133, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, the honey bee is believed to be extinct, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 8th in Eladen and 6,232nd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 115 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
