The Greater Antarctic Empire of Florin is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.54 billion Florinese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirius. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Florinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,026 trillion Antarctic Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 226,174 Antarctic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government violently suppresses separatist movements, Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Florin's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Florin is ranked 197,029th in the world and 4,862nd in the Rejected Realms for Least Corrupt Governments, with 65.56 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
