The Once Again Changed Flags of Eikangaard is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 5.735 billion Eikangaardis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaastergaad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.2%.

The powerhouse Eikangaardi economy, worth 519 trillion Skeids a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 90,636 Skeids, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 291,519 per year while the poor average 21,343, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, internet trolls are considered valiant supporters of the right to free speech, and critical thinking is grounds for expulsion from university. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eikangaard's national animal is the Eikan Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eikangaard is ranked 38,828th in the world and 8th in Sunalaya for Most Pro-Market, scoring 61.67 on the Rand Index.
