The Republic of 5005 Blossoms is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.294 billion 5005 Blossomsians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The strong 5005 Blossomsian economy, worth 130 trillion flowers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 56,697 flowers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 293,276 per year while the poor average 5,954, a ratio of 49.2 to 1.

For the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime is a problem. 5005 Blossoms's national animal is the cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

5005 Blossoms is ranked 47,785th in the world and 201st in The City of Ba Sing Se for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,059.28 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
