The Empire of Ferrum Lupus is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its closed borders, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 214 million Lupi 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.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.6%.

The strong Lupinus economy, worth 13.5 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 63,003 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 179,869 per year while the poor average 17,588, a ratio of 10.2 to 1.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, heavily subsidised Lupinus baskets litter the streets of The Empire of Mare Nostrum, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and the newest shade developed by Ferrum Lupus's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange'. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ferrum Lupus's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ferrum Lupus is ranked 82,200th in the world and 142nd in The Empire of Mare Nostrum for Most Cultured, scoring 65 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
