The Odds and Ends of Florilandia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Floris with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and deadly medical pandemics. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.561 billion Florilandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandemonia City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Florilandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,180 trillion Goldilocks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 254,744 Goldilocks, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the Florilandia Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Florilandia's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is fundamentalist agnosticism.

Florilandia is ranked 11,022nd in the world and 2nd in Taijitu for Most Extreme, scoring 37.16 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
