The Kingdom of Eureka II is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Justin with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, feral children, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.341 billion Eurekans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Hamilton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Eureka IIian economy, worth 482 trillion Eurekan Merits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 206,090 Eurekan Merits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 663,921 per year while the poor average 48,418, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Colonial subjects have Eureka IIian culture shoved down their throats, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, older AIs regularly threaten to send newer generation AIs to Reform Programming if caught rounding up instead of down, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eureka II's national animal is the Grey Nosed Rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Justinian.

Eureka II is ranked 159,219th in the world and 10th in The New Meritocracy for Most Average, scoring 33.47 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
