Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Fantasyland of Ekit is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 14.219 billion Ekitians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ekit City. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ekitian economy, worth a remarkable 2,531 trillion Fairydusts a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,037 Fairydusts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Leprechaun, Mike's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, and the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekit's national animal is the Leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ekit is ranked 66,676th in the world and 2nd in RuneScape Bits and Bytes for Most Authoritarian, with 0.23 Stalins.
