The Making a Fresh Start of Loftegen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lady Zaharra with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, parental licensing program, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.081 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, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. 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 4,111 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 340,359 bytes, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million bytes of property damage, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, parents are held criminally responsible for their children's crimes, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. 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.

Loftegen is ranked 6th in the Rejected Realms and 247th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 561 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
