The Democratic Federation of Ezechard is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Skex Arlon with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.6 billion Ezechardians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arlotopia. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ezechardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,062 trillion Skegbucks 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 189,680 Skegbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children in school learn that marriage and slavery go hand in hand, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year. Crime is totally unknown. Ezechard's national animal is the dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Argoxism.

Ezechard is ranked 1,708th in the world and 15th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 10,086.43 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
