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 deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 34.336 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 aren't funded at all. 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 32,599 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 949,416 petals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,972,717 per year while the poor average 21,518, a ratio of 370 to 1.

Citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, and birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire. 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 144th in the world and 2nd in Eladen for Largest Populations, with 34.3 billion Capita.
