The Republic of Electioneer is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tempest Fennac with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.509 billion Electioneerians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heartbeat City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Electioneerian economy, worth a remarkable 3,956 trillion Shinies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 239,661 Shinies, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime is totally unknown. Electioneer's national animal is the Fennec Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Electioneer is ranked 28,976th in the world and 833rd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 72.67 on the Rand Index.
