The Greater Antarctic Empire of Florin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.932 billion Florinese are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirius. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Florinian economy, worth 531 trillion Antarctic Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,411 Antarctic Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. 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 65,959th in the world and 1,203rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Income Equality, scoring 38.67 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
