The Never Gonna Give You Up of Eggy216 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Miguel Estévez Velázquez with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.823 billion Astleyans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ainish City. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Prices for nearly everything reach all time highs as business subsidies are discontinued, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and the undead roam the streets and countryside at night (Eggy216 has found 3 easter eggs). Crime is totally unknown. Eggy216's national animal is the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Eggism, and its currency is the Civilie.

Eggy216 is ranked 14th in Social Liberal Union and 1,062nd in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 237 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
