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 museums and concert halls, public floggings, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.159 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 government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 22,869 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 842,063 petals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,259,338 per year while the poor average 33,514, a ratio of 186 to 1.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. 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 44th in Eladen and 130,026th in the world for Most Inclusive, scoring -2,858 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
