The Democratic States of Epicity is a huge, safe nation, notable for its restrictive gun laws and suspicion of poets. The democratic population of 637 million Epicityians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paxton. The average income tax rate is 22.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Epicityian economy, worth 26.1 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,009 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, tuxedo rental and car hire companies are inexplicably going out of business, and mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Epicity's national animal is the horse.

Epicity is ranked 59,711th in the world and 173rd in Wintreath for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
