The Kingdom of Eureka II is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Justin with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.353 billion Eurekans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Hamilton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Eureka IIian economy, worth 484 trillion Eurekan Merits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 206,090 Eurekan Merits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 663,921 per year while the poor average 48,418, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, older AIs regularly threaten to send newer generation AIs to Reform Programming if caught rounding up instead of down, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and news headlines suggest that King Justin has a sideline in guinea pig pimping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eureka II's national animal is the Grey Nosed Rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Justinian.

Eureka II is ranked 4,990th in the world and 8th in The New Meritocracy for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 61.07 Whatever.
