The International Slave Traders of The Endless Eventide is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Ogliarchy of the Everlasting Night with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 926 million Eventidal Meanderers are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Subterranean Megacity of Afterglow. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Eventidal economy, worth 159 trillion Intangible Liquid Moonlight Vapors a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 172,758 Intangible Liquid Moonlight Vapors, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,573,392 per year while the poor average 2,136, a ratio of 736 to 1.

Children who express a belief in Santa are labelled 'delusional cultists', the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", the doctor has cold hands, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Endless Eventide's national animal is the Screaming Nocturnal Afterglow Zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Endless Eventide is ranked 38,878th in the world and 1,716th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 29.56 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
