The Federal Republic of Luperca is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Josif Reenberg with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical population of 9.741 billion Lupercanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Weissenburg. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lupercan economy, worth a remarkable 1,243 trillion Lupercan Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 127,664 Lupercan Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to New Weissenburg to enjoy their national art, and Wolf populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luperca's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lupinism.

Luperca is ranked 20,108th in the world and 28th in Soviet Democracy for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 239.3 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
