The Aristocracy of Futurus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pent Denja with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 41.213 billion Futurans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercantium. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Futuran economy, worth an astonishing 11,631 trillion autroes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 282,237 autroes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,620,598 per year while the poor average 2,832, a ratio of 925 to 1.

Mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, incidents involving lethal string attacks have gone way up, and the mummified remains of former kings are apparently discovered every time a tourist loses their wallet. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Futurus's national animal is the irodan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Futurus is ranked 95,905th in the world and 8th in Autropolis for Highest Crime Rates, with 7.83 crimes per hour.
