“Sounds good to me!”

Regional Influence: Powerbroker
The Confederacy of Ekit is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Mike with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.742 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ekit City. The average income tax rate is 77%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.
People unhook their phones at night to escape a never-ending tirade of phone calls, Ekit's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, divorce lawyers are found begging on the streets, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekit's national animal is the squirrel monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the donger.
