The Allied States of Filafia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Richard Steele with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 11.728 billion love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cania. The average income tax rate is 85%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, the FBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Filafia's national animal is the corsac, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Lucre.

Filafia is ranked 3,380th in the Rejected Realms and 117,574th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
