The Gold and Ashes and Idol Boys of Ezhara is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Mascots with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.866 billion Ezharans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woroshire. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ezharan economy, worth a remarkable 2,665 trillion Anzhems a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 245,326 Anzhems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ezhara's national animal is the Green Peafowl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Assorted Religions.

Ezhara is ranked 1,550th in the world and 1st in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Smartest Citizens, with 200.13 quips per hour.
