The United Kingdom of Flourite is a large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 68 million Flouriteans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Flouritean economy, worth 2.01 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 29,569 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, the Flouritean Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flourite's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flourite is ranked 124,310th in the world and 138th in Texas for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -4.46 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
