The Republic of Ecans is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Senator Marcus Erectus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 11.26 billion 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.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and the government is avowedly atheist. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Denarii.

Ecans is ranked 12th in Canada and 3,411th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 8 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
