The Technocratic Republic of Eflad is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr Erwitto Fircenza with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.368 billion Eflads are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tehnograd. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Efladian economy, worth 288 trillion Ippons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 121,915 Ippons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, and saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eflad's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eflad is ranked 4,427th in the world and 162nd in the South Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 45.98 average smiles per day.
