The Blue Holy Christmas Tree of Easing is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Santa with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, fear of technology, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.036 billion Easingians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, with Environment, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Pole. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Easingian economy, worth a remarkable 1,873 trillion Gold Coins a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Trout Farming, Retail, Gambling, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 169,719 Gold Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 609,350 per year while the poor average 33,868, a ratio of 18.0 to 1.

The government is frequently held to ransom by the increasing demands of bloodthirsty pirates, citizens must pay to enjoy Easing's pristine beaches, prodigal children celebrate as charitable bequests plummet, and it's believed that women's brains will overheat if they think for themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Easing's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yodlism.

Easing is ranked 187,062nd in the world and 78th in Disney World for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 62.52 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
