The Kingdom of Eureka II is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Justin with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and feral children. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.074 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Hamilton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Eureka IIian economy, worth 663 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 215,757 Eurekan Merits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 674,495 per year while the poor average 52,955, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

Debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, and the military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation. 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 1,223rd in the world and 1st in The New Meritocracy for Most Patriotic, with 86.12 flags saluted per person per day.
