Loftegen 3

The Federal Republic of Loftegen 3 is a small, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 45 million Loftegen 3ians 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, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The thriving Loftegen 3ian economy, worth 3.12 trillion bytes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Average income is 69,370 bytes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 235,408 per year while the poor average 15,087, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

The government would rather execute a hundred innocent men than let one guilty one appeal a verdict, the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, and no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Loftegen 3's national animal is the black ram, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Loftegen 3 is ranked 36,241st in the world and 1,135th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.9 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
