The Holy Empire of Ezlion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by His Holiness Alexander Ezlion VII with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.47 billion Ezlians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Radiant. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ezlionin economy, worth a remarkable 5,562 trillion Fallows a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 301,178 Fallows, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,570,008 per year while the poor average 6,193, a ratio of 415 to 1.

Public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, the Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All", and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Ezlion's national animal is the Kurtel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of the Ezlion.

Ezlion is ranked 331st in the world and 3rd in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 2.57 million Standard Monetary Units.
