The Floral Commune of Peace and Love but Better is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lavender Kuznetsov-Penrose with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.22 billion Flowers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the shed. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Flower economy, worth 296 trillion Green Carnations 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 47,647 Green Carnations, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, straitjackets are a common religious garb, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime is totally unknown. Peace and Love but Better's national animal is the Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Peace and Love but Better is ranked 218,201st in the world and 1,183rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 32.76 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
