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 notable for its deadly medical pandemics, ritual sacrifices, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.258 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, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, 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 21,755 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 828,535 petals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,843,089 per year while the poor average 20,610, a ratio of 332 to 1.

The richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 3rd in Eladen and 30th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 482 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
