The P2TM Veteran of Agritum is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Free Market with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.589 billion Agrilings are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The large, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bruxelles in Space. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.9%.

The powerhouse Agritummy economy, worth a remarkable 2,078 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 142,498 Euros, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 575,440 per year while the poor average 23,552, a ratio of 24.4 to 1.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and The Free Market is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agritum's national animal is the AELVIS DUCK, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Agritum is ranked 6,551st in the world and 4th in Ankh Mauta for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 341.89 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
