The People's Republic of Equalination is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Syver Birkeland with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.549 billion Equalians 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, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equalicity. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient equal economy, worth 420 trillion Equals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 118,611 Equals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, most ambassadors from Equalination retire only a few years after being appointed, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Equalination's national animal is the Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Equalination is ranked 163,388th in the world and 7th in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Most Devout, with 2.63 Prayers Per Hour.
