The American Union of Figueria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Gregarious Balthore with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.6 billion Figuerians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Horlyn. The average income tax rate is 25.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Figuerian economy, worth 490 trillion Distrols a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,598 Distrols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, the military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation, and the government violently suppresses separatist movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Figueria's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Figueria is ranked 193,629th in the world and 53rd in CISB for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -8.94 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
