The Confederacy of Fulguria is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 107 million Fulgurians 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 11.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Fulgurian economy, worth 6.84 trillion Fulgurian Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,950 Fulgurian Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Emperor Penguin Dung" has been declared a national treasure, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and children seem to be getting better at lying these days. Crime is totally unknown. Fulguria's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Fulguria is ranked 80,684th in the world and 197th in Enadia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
