The Republic of Flooforia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ayn Rand with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.544 billion Flooforians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized individuals prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Floofopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Flooforian economy, worth a remarkable 4,154 trillion shekels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 306,722 shekels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,322,992 per year while the poor average 11,360, a ratio of 204 to 1.

The local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, and the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Flooforia's national animal is the yak, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Objectivism.

Flooforia is ranked 7,104th in the world and 361st in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 438.49 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
