The United Kingdom of Flourite is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 420 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veridian City. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Flouritean economy, worth 21.6 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 quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 51,374 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 159,253rd in the world and 150th in Texas for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -13.19 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
