The Republic of Flowers of Power is a massive, pleasant nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.897 billion Flowers of Powerians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 21.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Flowers of Powerian economy, worth 108 trillion petals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,241 petals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Political commentators say that Leader's fruitcake plans are about to go pear-shaped, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, armed security details escort librarians to their homes, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flowers of Power's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Flowers of Power is ranked 173,185th in the world and 7,422nd in Osiris for Safest, scoring 47.82 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
