The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.769 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 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.

The government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, museums occasionally burn priceless artifacts in order to intimidate foreign curators, groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', and the nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes. 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 8th in Eladen and 978th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 146 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
