The Neverending Moonlit Waves of The Endless Eventide is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Ogliarchy of the Eventidal Exchange with a fair hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.821 billion Eventidal Meanderers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. 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 415 trillion Liquid Moonlight Starstreams a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 228,345 Liquid Moonlight Starstreams, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,090,311 per year while the poor average 2,681, a ratio of 779 to 1.

The government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, The Endless Eventide has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and relatives of recent award winners find their trophies make stylish urns. 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 Illuminating Howling Star Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Truth Looming In The Twilight.

The Endless Eventide is ranked 58,090th in the world and 2,456th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 87.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
