The Empire of Epic Heck is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 299 million Heckers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Träldom. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Epically Heckian economy, worth 23.4 trillion fetuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,259 fetuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children get arrested for floating paper boats on lakes, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Träldom to enjoy their national art, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Epic Heck's national animal is the peepeepoopoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Epic Heck is ranked 88,717th in the world and 3rd in The New Satoncunist Order for Most Stationary, with 54.60033311132 Days.
