The Capitalist Insurgency of Loftegen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lady Zaharra with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.149 billion Loftegenans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. 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.

Movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence, graffiti graces every city's streets, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and inheritance tax has recently 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 10th in Lazarus and 227th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 750.4 Insults Per Minute (net).
