The Democratic Commonwealth of Ecclestia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the President of Ecclestia with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.851 billion Ecclestians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birmingham. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ecclestian economy, worth a remarkable 3,524 trillion Ecclestian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 222,358 Ecclestian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ecclestia's national animal is the Wallaby, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ecclestia is ranked 94,217th in the world and 35th in Union of Christian Nations for Most Average, scoring 38.53 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
