The Kingdom of Efectivstan is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 9.454 billion Efectivstanians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turing. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Efectivstanian economy, worth 856 trillion booleans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,611 booleans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Efectivstanians seem to be catching more chills, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Efectivstan's national animal is the crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Efectivstan is ranked 133,758th in the world and 2,953rd in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 208 billion Standard Monetary Units.
