Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Eckstokzia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, aversion to nipples, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.266 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 307 trillion Penkcas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,499 Penkcas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, priests are being drafted by the church load, and the government pours millions of Penkcas into rehabilitation programs annually. 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 83,560th in the world and 184th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,377.3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
