The United Individuals of EquGothic Nation is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 22.87 billion EquGothic Nationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant EquGothic Nationian economy, worth 388 trillion equgoths a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 16,982 equgoths, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EquGothic Nation's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

EquGothic Nation is ranked 155,114th in the world and 4,924th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -79.61 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
