The Republic of Nouvelle-Floride is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Louis Barrande with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 923 million Florideans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-Barthélemy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Nouvelle-Floridean economy, worth 125 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 136,367 francs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 724,048 per year while the poor average 13,568, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

Pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Nouvelle-Floride's national animal is the Flamingo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Nouvelle-Floride is ranked 36,566th in the world and 1,922nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,441.45 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
