The Queen's State of EZ is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.381 billion EZians 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, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.
The very strong EZian economy, worth 562 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 34,308 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 233,258 per year while the poor average 1,843, a ratio of 126 to 1.
Voting is voluntary and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. EZ's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
