The Republic of Equitasia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Billy Shorts with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.771 billion Equitasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keatingville. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Equitasian economy, worth 325 trillion Pennies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,480 Pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and police officers find government bureaucracy more terrifying than most serial killers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Equitasia's national animal is the bob hawke, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Trade unionism.

Equitasia is ranked 162,596th in the world and 202nd in The Western Isles for Fattest Citizens, with 5.8 Obesity Rate.
