The Worker's Syndicalist Union of Ecradia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its closed borders, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 734 million Ecradians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sauçon. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ecradian economy, worth 66.7 trillion Strohles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 90,872 Strohles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ecradia's national animal is the House Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ecradia is ranked 22,539th in the world and 130th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Cultured, scoring 81 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
