The Protectorate of East Sikayl is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 460 million East Sikaylians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 32.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong East Sikaylian economy, worth 28.4 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,781 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, and the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. East Sikayl's national animal is the Anthropomorphic Tea Kettle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

East Sikayl is ranked 75,980th in the world and 1,692nd in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 86.5953959678 Days.
