The Republic of Ecans is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Senator Marcus Erectus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 12.337 billion Ecansians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Defence and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma Deux. The average income tax rate is 74%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Uranium Mining.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, children are raised bilingual from an early age, the government is avowedly atheist, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ecans's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Denarii.

Ecans is ranked 168th in Canada and 107,006th in the world for Best Weather, with -202 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
