The Commonwealth of New Eclium is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its digital currency, ritual sacrifices, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 329 million New Ecliumians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldmare City. The average income tax rate is 27.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Ecliumian economy, worth 30.1 trillion finches a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 91,557 finches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Eclium's national animal is the goldfinch, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Eclium is ranked 28,743rd in the world and 14th in Thegye for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,231.73 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
