The Cultured Nation of Ezhara is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Mascots with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.979 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, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woroshire. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ezharan economy, worth a remarkable 1,405 trillion Anzhems a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,136 Anzhems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders. 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 35,216th in the world and 3rd in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.99 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
