The Free Associated Territories of Ecurbia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Free Syndicate of Community Councils with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.447 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, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Commerce and Social Equality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bruceton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery.

Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ecurbia's national animal is the manbearpig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Kwan.

Ecurbia is ranked 3rd in Union of Progressive Democracies and 122,627th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -79 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
