The Republic of Effazio is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Chancellery with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.175 billion Effazians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arysoma. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Effazian economy, worth a remarkable 2,974 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 183,878 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, and Arysoma spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime is totally unknown. Effazio's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Effazio is ranked 309th in the world and 3rd in Forest for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 16,544.72 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
