The Community of Ex-Egg is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 878 million Ex-Eggians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 9.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ex-Eggian economy, worth 22.6 trillion Ex-golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,788 Ex-golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers, the death penalty has been reintroduced, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Ex-Egg in an international press conference. Crime is moderate. Ex-Egg's national animal is the Ex-Egg, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ex-Egg is ranked 168,756th in the world and 26th in Ex Nation for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.11 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
