The Flower Girl of Ananke II is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Queen of Thorns with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 31.2 billion Anankeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casterly Rock. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Anankean economy, worth a remarkable 4,208 trillion kroner a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 134,891 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the arms industry is strictly regulated, prices for nearly everything reach all-time highs as business tax breaks are discontinued, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. Crime is totally unknown. Ananke II's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ananke II is ranked 32,748th in the world and 647th in 10000 Islands for Safest, scoring 106.57 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
