The Cure Missiles of Sigma Fistica is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Sigma with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.168 billion Sigma Fisticans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Social Policy, with Education, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sigma City. The average income tax rate is 49.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Sigma Fistican economy, worth 696 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 62,395 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the government is giving peace a chance, and prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Sigma Fistica's national animal is the Dracon, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Atheism.

Sigma Fistica is ranked 3,454th in the world and 5th in Spiritus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 93.31 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
