The Capitalist Insurgency of Loftegen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lady Zaharra with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.503 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.

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.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, the psych wards are overflowing with transsexuals, military spending is on the increase, and all tariffs have been abolished. 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 3,642nd in Lazarus and 113,353rd in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -128 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
