The Colony of Eightlandia is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.007 billion Eightlandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 39.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Eightlandian economy, worth 35.4 trillion eights a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 35,172 eights, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Eightlandia's national animal is the eight.

Eightlandia is ranked 195,920th in the world and 23rd in Sonnel for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 29.15 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
