The Capitalist Insurgency of Loftegen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Zaharra with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.907 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.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and meat-eating is frowned upon. 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 3,030th in Lazarus and 110,004th in the world for Best Weather, with -565 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
