The Bannorn of Ekalta is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jothos vos Aden with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.009 billion Ekaltans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deta. The average income tax rate is 19.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ekaltan economy, worth 52.1 trillion kamas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,613 kamas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, and bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekalta's national animal is the vulture.

Ekalta is ranked 162,007th in the world and 9th in Singapore Island for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.25 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
