The Community of Egzarkia is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, flagrant waste-dumping, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.929 billion Egzarkis live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teddy bear. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Egzarkian economy, worth 368 trillion Welds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 191,029 Welds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 930,575 per year while the poor average 22,598, a ratio of 41.2 to 1.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with Welds, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and the government has forked out millions on an unmade bed that is apparently East Lebatuckese "art". Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Egzarkia's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Egzarkia is ranked 158,539th in the world and 7,152nd in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 3.47 Prayers Per Hour.
