The Greater Antarctic Empire of Florin is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.035 billion Florinese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirius. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Florinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,194 trillion Antarctic Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 242,888 Antarctic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 254,175th in the world and 6,397th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -11.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
