Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Perseverence of Loftegen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Zaharra with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.966 billion Loftegenans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 6,884 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 405,786 bytes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,404,160 per year while the poor average 85,688, a ratio of 16.4 to 1.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, a third of Loftegenans are e-certified CEOs, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. 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 76,079th in the world and 2,438th in Lazarus for Highest Drug Use, scoring 70.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
