The Rejected Realm of Ekruteak is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.615 billion Ekruteakians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ekruteakian economy, worth 65.3 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,457 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Ekruteak in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekruteak's national animal is the bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ekruteak is ranked 88,180th in the world and 2,728th in the Rejected Realms for Most Authoritarian, with 795.07 milliStalins.
