The Apostolic Holy Roman Empire of The Flood is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian III with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, triple-decker prams, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.662 billion Floodians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The enormous but inefficient Floodian economy, worth a remarkable 2,319 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 112,277 Imperial Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, the food pyramid has been replaced with the word PASTA in bold block capital letters, and foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Floodian bee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Flood's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Flood is ranked 224,501st in the world and 3rd in The Arch Imperium of Mystiina for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.24 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
