The Federal Republic of Eckie-Cola is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.553 billion Eckie-Colans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.8%.

The powerhouse Eckie-Colan economy, worth 225 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is 88,363 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 253,712 per year while the poor average 24,472, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Eckie-Cola, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Eckie-Cola City, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Eckie-Cola's national animal is the Cappy, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Eckie-Cola is ranked 209,112th in the world and 6,832nd in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -10.95 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
