The Democratic Empire of Extorant is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.57 billion Extortians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Extorant City. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Extortian economy, worth 748 trillion Obsidian Shards a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,393 Obsidian Shards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Extortian Embarrassments, many feel that the government's ban on cars to combat reckless driving was "a tad excessive", glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, and government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Extorant's national animal is the Sea Lamprey, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Extorant is ranked 16,833rd in the world and 1st in Rocky Taiga Two Electric Boogaloo for Lowest Crime Rates, with 90.18 law-abiding acts per hour.
