The Allied States of Figlandia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 725 million Figs enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The all-consuming Figgish economy, worth 73.7 trillion Shabbatzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 101,620 Shabbatzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Vaccinations are mandatory, prison visits increase substantially during election years, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year.

Figlandia's national animal is the Corkadrew, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
