The Confederacy of Floodplain is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 492 million Floodplainians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Administration, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Paul. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Floodplainian economy, worth 46.4 trillion Lee Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,261 Lee Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', and the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Floodplain's national animal is the Northern cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Floodplain is ranked 26,724th in the world and 23rd in Nova Historiae for Longest Average Lifespans, with 70.16 Years.
