The Empire of Ultima Terra is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lucius von Palatine with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.795 billion Ultima Terrans 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, 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 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ultima Terran economy, worth a remarkable 1,555 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 144,137 Luciens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Being wrong on the internet has been classified as digital terrorism, "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Ultima Terran citizenship in droves, and alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó. 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 11,964th in the world and 646th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.97 Years.
