The State of Eikangaard is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Garnaren VIII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, vat-grown people, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.48 billion Eikans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaastergaad. The average income tax rate is 45.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Eikan economy, worth 748 trillion Skeids a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 100,038 Skeids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the housing market has collapsed like an overbaked Brancalandian souffle, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. 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 68,441st in the world and 26th in Sunalaya for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 45.27 Effective Tax Rate.
