The Democratic Federation of Ezechard is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Skex Arlon with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.749 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 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ezechardian economy, worth 819 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. Average income is an impressive 172,632 Skegbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. 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 237,092nd in the world and 164th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.83 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
