The This Land of Pretty Floral Bonnet is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Captain with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.807 billion Browncoats hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pretty Floral Bonnetian economy, worth 820 trillion shinies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,610 shinies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem. Pretty Floral Bonnet's national animal is the space monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Order of Shepherds.

Pretty Floral Bonnet is ranked 23,823rd in the world and 2nd in Firefly for Highest Drug Use, scoring 114 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
