The Democratic Party of Ekamatra is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Deacon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 33.605 billion Ekamatrans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ekamatra City. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ekamatran economy, worth a remarkable 4,994 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is an impressive 148,610 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, calling out of the blue has become taboo, and there's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekamatra's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ekamatra is ranked 102nd in the world and 6th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 99.92 on the Human Development Index.
