The Empire of Ebaq is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 263 million Ebaqians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anaxes. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.4%.

The very strong Ebaqian economy, worth 26.6 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,113 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Ebaq' is a smash hit, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, and cyclists spend more time unlocking their bicycles than they do cycling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ebaq's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ebaq is ranked 26,803rd in the world and 60th in Wintreath for Safest, scoring 107.79 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
