The Democratic Republic of Florevana is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.68 billion Florevanans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Florence. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Florevanan economy, worth 87.5 trillion flors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,092 flors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, light entertainment isn't dead, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Florevana's national animal is the honey badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
