The Empire of Ekonia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 654 million Ekonians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elkton. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ekonian economy, worth 49.2 trillion Untzes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,271 Untzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, and colonial subjects have Ekonian culture shoved down their throats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekonia's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ekonia is ranked 230,322nd in the world and 9,500th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 4.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
