Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Eckstokzia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.869 billion Eckstokzians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eckstokzia City. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Eckstokzian economy, worth 248 trillion Penkcas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,107 Penkcas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and students cut up leftover Penkcas during Arts and Crafts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eckstokzia's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eckstokzia is ranked 105,494th in the world and 226th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Black Market, with 81.3 billion Standard Monetary Units.
