The Making a Fresh Start of Loftegen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lady Zaharra with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, parental licensing program, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.271 billion Loftegenans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altenburg. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Loftegenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,182 trillion bytes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 340,806 bytes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 974,355 per year while the poor average 94,950, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.
A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Loftegen's national animal is the black ram, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zaharranism.
