The Making a Fresh Start of Loftegen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Zaharra with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.651 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 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 infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, religious education is a new government priority, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. 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 6th in the Rejected Realms and 238th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 558 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
