Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Deus Terrarum of Figltopia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Praetor Longinus Celsus Aurelius with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 8.194 billion Figltopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loftia Centro Omnia. The average income tax rate is 18.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Figltopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,239 trillion FIGL Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,267 FIGL Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Euthanasia is legal, governments opposing Figltopia are beset by rebels, Praetor Longinus Celsus Aurelius's mistress is the belle at many state balls, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Figltopia. Crime is totally unknown. Figltopia's national animal is the Eldrazi, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Figltopia is ranked 15th in The Royal Alliance II and 74,428th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 16 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
