Flower Dance 35

Population2.309 billion


The Republic of Flower Dance 35 is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.309 billion Flower Dance 35ians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Flower Dance 35ian economy, worth 24.1 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 10,432 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flower Dance 35's national animal is the dove.

Flower Dance 35 is ranked 209,978th in the world and 1st in Iron Order Recruitment Centre for Rudest Citizens, with 11.84 Insults Per Minute.
