The Kingdom of Efectivstan is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.496 billion Efectivstanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turing. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Efectivstanian economy, worth 605 trillion booleans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,214 booleans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, Efectivstan's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Efectivstan's national animal is the crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Efectivstan is ranked 147,448th in the world and 7,472nd in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -7.23 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
