The Worker's Syndicalist Union of Ecradia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 688 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 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ecradian economy, worth 61.7 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 89,701 Strohles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried House Sparrow Dung" has been declared a national treasure, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. 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 28,968th in the world and 127th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 67.68 on the Human Development Index.
