The Empire of Ekonia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 642 million Ekonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elkton. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ekonian economy, worth 47.9 trillion Untzes a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,671 Untzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, cows graze until the wolves come home, a massive campaign is underway to ensure the race of Ekonia remains pure, and citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekonia's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ekonia is ranked 88,742nd in the world and 3,781st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 885.89 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
