The Republic of Ecans is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Senator Marcus Erectus with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.605 billion Ecansians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma Deux. The average income tax rate is 3.6%.
The powerhouse Ecansian economy, worth a remarkable 2,653 trillion Denariis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,041 Denariis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
The government is avowedly atheist, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, euthanasia is legal, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime is totally unknown. Ecans's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
