The Federated Communes of Luftetia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Executive Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.505 billion Luftetians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Commune. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Luftetian economy, worth a remarkable 1,289 trillion Argents a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 171,782 Argents, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the 'sing-a-long with the Executive Council' album is a popular souvenir, and sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming. Crime is totally unknown. Luftetia's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Luftetia is ranked 4,095th in the world and 59th in The Communist Bloc for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 595.49 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
