The Principality of East Con Kan is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 907 million East Con Kanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish East Con Kanian economy, worth 27.9 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 30,714 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, all guns must be registered, extreme political groups are outlawed, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Con Kan's national animal is the turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

East Con Kan is ranked 118,814th in the world and 11th in The Empire of Tamriel for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 404.75 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
