The Matriarchy of Florenczia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 291 million Florenczians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 16.8%.

The strong Florenczian economy, worth 22.7 trillion flores a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,081 flores, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Towns that stop turning a profit are turned into animal sanctuaries, a recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, the government is spending billions of taxpayer flores to support "struggling" industries, and one does not simply walk into the tundra. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Florenczia's national animal is the maned wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Florenczia is ranked 68,284th in the world and 2,723rd in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,064.62 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
