The Absolute Fascistic Monarchy of Ptolemaicia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Logan XIV with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.412 billion Kemetics are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khemenu. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ptolemaician economy, worth a remarkable 3,455 trillion Sovereign Crown Shillings a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 466,236 Sovereign Crown Shillings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,052,053 per year while the poor average 66,494, a ratio of 30.9 to 1.

A primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, dining out often involves Djehuty Ibises on the plate no matter what you order, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Djehuty Ibis'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ptolemaicia's national animal is the Djehuty Ibis, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kemeticism.

Ptolemaicia is ranked 9,461st in the world and 5th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Best Weather, with 213 meters of sunlight.
