LeaderLucas the Fourth


The Blue of Filibustra is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lucas the Fourth with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.973 billion Filibustrians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Obstructa. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Filian economy, worth a remarkable 1,213 trillion Ekspis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 244,115 Ekspis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through Lucas the Fourth's window to draw attention to their issues, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Filibustra's national animal is the Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Filibustra is ranked 29,356th in the world and 655th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 306,980 Standard Monetary Units.
