The Nation of IrisTheFlower is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Iris with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.035 billion IrisTheFlowerians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paritarikakesiti. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse IrisTheFlowerian economy, worth 519 trillion petals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,153 petals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mathematicians are hated by children across the country, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, and IrisTheFlowerian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Iris. Crime is totally unknown. IrisTheFlower's national animal is the purple caterpillar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

IrisTheFlower is ranked 151,066th in the world and 776th in Europeia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 27.25 on the Rand Index.
