Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Council of Paper Flowers is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Madame Lee with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.232 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 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Paper Flowersian economy, worth 338 trillion Origamis a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 54,334 Origamis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Paper Flowers, the government is flooded with compensation requests, and military spending is on the increase. 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 75th in The Moon and 122,935th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -1 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
