Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Council of Paper Flowers is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Madame Lee with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.959 billion Paper Flowersians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imaginary. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Paper Flowersian economy, worth 378 trillion Origamis a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 54,455 Origamis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government is flooded with compensation requests, military spending is on the increase, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paper Flowers's national animal is the Lotus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Paper Flowers is ranked 4th in The Moon and 13,281st in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 14 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
