EzkelHeim

Population127 million

The Empire of EzkelHeim is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 127 million EzkelHeimians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 31.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse EzkelHeimian economy, worth 12.2 trillion Gils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 95,690 Gils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and Maxtopian villagers starve by the time EzkelHeimian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EzkelHeim's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

EzkelHeim is ranked 140,784th in the world and 6,068th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 22.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
