The Passionate Rider of Florita is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 5.203 billion Floritans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flora. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Floritan economy, worth 221 trillion Sunflowers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 42,606 Sunflowers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, it is well recognised that you can't sustain communism without a bit of spirit, and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Florita's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Florita is ranked 56,751st in the world and 531st in Artificial Solar System for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.59 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
