The Empire of Ultima Terra is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lucius von Palatine with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.79 billion Ultima Terrans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malus. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ultima Terran economy, worth 706 trillion Luciens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,101 Luciens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, the government is in utter turmoil following the the recent abolishment of the tax code, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ultima Terra's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Melkorism.

Ultima Terra is ranked 18,939th in the world and 980th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 267.11 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
