The Woodhouse Sanctum of Eckart is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, devout population of 15.679 billion Eckartians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 38.6%.

The powerhouse Eckartian economy, worth a remarkable 1,017 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,914 $$s, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, people who have lived their entire lives in Eckart are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, and meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Eckart's national animal is the ^-^, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Eckart is ranked 121,844th in the world and 1st in Berghof for Most Income Equality, scoring 18.77 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
