The Pharaoh Emeritus of Detective Figs is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, parental licensing program, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 11.819 billion Figsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nowhere. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Detective Figsian economy, worth 555 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 46,984 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies, the government spends millions of tax dollars on vouchers to pay for expensive private schools, Leader's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Detective Figs's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Detective Figs is ranked 20,386th in the world and 1,120th in Osiris for Most Beautiful Environments, with 967.87 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
