The Deus Terrarum of Figltopia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Praetor Longinus Celsus Aurelius with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.228 billion Figltopians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loftia Centro Omnia. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Figltopian economy, worth a remarkable 2,384 trillion FIGL Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 180,284 FIGL Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All astronauts are hot twenty-something models selected because they have 'the right stuff', in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, and polite commuters on the Loftia Centro Omnia Metro always let hurried workers off the train first. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Figltopia's national animal is the Eldrazi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Figltopia is ranked 2,524th in the world and 47th in the Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 458.91 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
