The United Individuals of EquGothic Nation is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, lack of airports, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 25.081 billion EquGothic Nationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant EquGothic Nationian economy, worth 437 trillion equgoths a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 17,457 equgoths, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of EquGothic Nationian Embarrassments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EquGothic Nation's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

EquGothic Nation is ranked 220,238th in the world and 6,388th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -2029.56 on the Hayek Index.
