The Corporate Federation of Florinsia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chief executive officer with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.86 billion Florinsians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Florinsia Corporate Headquarters. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Florinsian economy, worth 220 trillion Florinsian Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 118,633 Florinsian Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,079,659 per year while the poor average 1,477, a ratio of 730 to 1.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, the well-to-do in Sonindia are never on time for important appointments, and shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Florinsia's national animal is the Komodo dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Consumerism.

Florinsia is ranked 170,982nd in the world and 197th in Sonindia for Most Authoritarian, with 387.16 milliStalins.
