The Empire of Little Flowers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a half dozen Conglomerates with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 35.118 billion Badasses enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare 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 33,343 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 949,478 petals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,973,238 per year while the poor average 21,519, a ratio of 370 to 1.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, and card collectors duel to the death. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 175,425th in the world and 33rd in Eladen for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -157.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
