Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Perseverence of Loftegen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lady Zaharra with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 17.513 billion Loftegenans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altenburg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Loftegenian economy, worth a remarkable 6,982 trillion bytes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 398,704 bytes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,619,835 per year while the poor average 65,238, a ratio of 24.8 to 1.

No animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, both illness and poverty are seen as signs of low moral worth, and kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes. Crime is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Loftegen's national animal is the black ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zaharraism.

Loftegen is ranked 882nd in the world and 40th in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
