The Empire of Ultima Terra is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lucius von Palatine with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.271 billion Ultima Terrans 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malus. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ultima Terran economy, worth a remarkable 1,245 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 134,343 Luciens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Lucius von Palatine's wardrobe, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork. 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 114,593rd in the world and 6,022nd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 286.16 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
