The Free Land of Eigenland is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18 million Eigenlšnder live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Healthcare, Environment, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The powerhouse Eigen economy, worth 1.53 trillion foremarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 85,212 foremarks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 404,305 per year while the poor average 10,598, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, Eigenlšnder no longer find themselves bumping into their exes at family gatherings, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Eigenland's national animal is the spook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eigenland is ranked 140,919th in the world and 107th in Anarchy for Most Influential, scoring 17 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
