Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Flooforia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ayn Rand with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.386 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 receive no funds. 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 4,092 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 305,729 shekels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,239,414 per year while the poor average 12,844, a ratio of 174 to 1.

Suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, and referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process. 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 101st in the world and 3rd in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 108.55 Weapons Per Person.
