The People's Republic of ECONAZIS2 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 696 million Econazis 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, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of the Glorious Leader. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped ECONAZIS2ian economy, worth 32.9 trillion Leaveses 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 mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 47,323 Leaveses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in The North Pacific, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and sprinters achieve their personal bests only when the Olympic Team recruiters come calling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ECONAZIS2's national animal is the Blob fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

ECONAZIS2 is ranked 165,207th in the world and 8,559th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 49 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
