The Colony of Futurae Vitae is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Abeghi Noqu with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, sprawling nuclear power plants, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.689 billion Futraens are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basis Terrae. The average income tax rate is 35.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Futraen economy, worth 485 trillion Lunas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 131,639 Lunas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, glossy adverts featuring baby's first puff adorn mothers' magazines, and woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Futurae Vitae's national animal is the Oryx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Futurae Vitae is ranked 41,114th in the world and 2,143rd in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 485 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
