The Federation of Enggano is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Joyelyn Ayaturma with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.794 billion Engganoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cibola. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The Engganoan economy, worth 807 trillion Cruzies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,408 Cruzies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Enggano's national animal is the frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Enggano is ranked 167,682nd in the world and 372nd in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -6.75 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
