The Greater Antarctic Empire of Florin is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.583 billion Florinese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirius. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Florinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,041 trillion Antarctic Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 227,147 Antarctic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The parliament building has installed a revolving door, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Florin's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Florin is ranked 4,461st in the world and 126th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Average Incomes, with 227,147.37 Standard Monetary Units.
