The Community of EGM is a massive, genial nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 2.28 billion EGMians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The EGManian economy, worth 96.1 trillion egolds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,141 egolds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, refugees from other nations are flocking to EGM's border, and moonshine has made a resurgence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EGM's national animal is the Golden Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

EGM is ranked 63,737th in the world and 51st in Force for Most Developed, scoring 61.3 on the Human Development Index.
