Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Eckstokzia is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.064 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 276 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 133,734 Penkcas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Eckstokzians any less frightened, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", and every workday begins with group therapy. 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 7,654th in the world and 21st in Renegade Islands Alliance for Longest Average Lifespans, with 87.1 Years.
