The Republic of Eat pant is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 293 million Eat pantians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bingfield. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.7%.

The powerhouse Eat pantian economy, worth 24.0 trillion dollar things a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 82,039 dollar things, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 581,710 per year while the poor average 3,857, a ratio of 150 to 1.

Public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", unruly families are deliberately marooned on desert islands, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Eat pant's national animal is the pant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Eat pant is ranked 87,829th in the world and 2,946th in the Rejected Realms for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,660.61 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
