Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of public education, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 30.776 billion Badasses are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petalopia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Badass economy, worth an astonishing 28,741 trillion petals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 933,891 petals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,289,668 per year while the poor average 51,624, a ratio of 121 to 1.

Most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, most Badass video games are banned in other countries, the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels, and citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Little Flowers's national animal is the honey bee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moghdom.

Little Flowers is ranked 1,941st in the world and 10th in Eladen for Largest Black Market, with 287 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
