The Union Technocracy of Figueria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gregarious Balthore with a fair hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.843 billion Figuerians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Horlyn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.0%.

The powerhouse Figuerian economy, worth 326 trillion Distrols a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Gambling. Average income is 84,919 Distrols, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 314,308 per year while the poor average 16,160, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Figueria's national animal is the Brown Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Figueria is ranked 26,764th in the world and 6th in CISB for Most Pro-Market, scoring 69.75 on the Rand Index.
