The United Federation of Futarjan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord L III of Futarjan with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.559 billion Futarjanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Under London. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Futarjanian economy, worth 188 trillion US Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,857 US Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Futarjan's national animal is the House Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Futarjan is ranked 37,684th in the world and 1st in Futarjan for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,993.91 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
