The 197th Flower

The Republic of The 197th Flower is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its burgeoning tiger population. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 516 million 197th Flowerians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 24.5%.

The 197th Flowerian economy, worth 24.5 trillion petals a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 47,540 petals, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The 197th Flower's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The 197th Flower is ranked 147,723rd in the world and 3,327th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 142 billion Standard Monetary Units.
