The Capitalist Insurgency of Loftegen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Zaharra with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.945 billion Loftegans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altenburg. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Arms Manufacturing.

Pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Loftegen. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loftegen's national animal is the black ram, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Zaharranism, and its currency is the byte.

Loftegen is ranked 1,313th in Lazarus and 34,554th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 4 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
