Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Deus Terrarum of Figltopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Praetor Longinus Celsus Aurelius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.151 billion Figltopians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loftia Centro Omnia. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Figltopian economy, worth a remarkable 2,162 trillion FIGL Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 178,005 FIGL Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Figltopia are blocked up with orders for new public loos, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and cops with assault weaponry are forcing their way into private homes to search for terrorists. 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 131,115th in the world and 2,731st in the Rejected Realms for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.01 Crimes Per Hour.
