The Democratic States of Progressus terra is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sophia Aria Anastasia Veratine with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.78 billion terranas are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of terra de libera. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish terrana economy, worth 83.6 trillion Terrims 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 Trout Farming. Average income is 30,072 Terrims, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, Sophia Aria Anastasia Veratine's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and soldiers are now trained how to make sandwiches properly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Progressus terra's national animal is the Cormorant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Progressus terra is ranked 235,314th in the world and 37th in Antarctica for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.36 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
