The Green Land of Eggtowne is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Grade A Minister of Eggs with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.269 billion Eggs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egg City. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Eggy economy, worth 159 trillion eggs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 125,632 eggs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the government loves seeing the little people fight, kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eggtowne's national animal is the marten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eggtowne is ranked 3,336th in the world and 1st in Eggland for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 7,951.37 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
