The Deus Terrarum of Figltopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Praetor Longinus Celsus Aurelius with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.622 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 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Figltopian economy, worth a remarkable 2,041 trillion FIGL Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 175,687 FIGL Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The monarchy has adopted absolute primogeniture, all tariffs have been abolished, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and fighter pilots crash out of the air after failing to understand their foreign instruction manuals. 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 103,832nd in the world and 2,094th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Drug Use, scoring 58.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
