Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Eckstokzia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.627 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 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Eckstokzian economy, worth 359 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 136,822 Penkcas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. 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 16,322nd in the world and 49th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.57 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
