Cape Flower

Population2.268 billion

CapitalFlower Arena
LeaderAdom Levy


The Free Land of Cape Flower is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Adom Levy with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.268 billion Cape Flowerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flower Arena. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cape Flowerian economy, worth 335 trillion Vies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,122 Vies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, the nation leads The North Pacific in per capita stalking, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cape Flower's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cape Flower is ranked 25,641st in the world and 637th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 214.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
