The Democratic Party of Ekamatra is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Deacon with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 31.775 billion Ekamatrans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ekamatra City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ekamatran economy, worth a remarkable 4,603 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is an impressive 144,891 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, members of majority races are forced out of their homes to make way for Bigtopians, helicopter parenting is on the rise, and the new one Dollar coin also makes a handy throwing-star. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekamatra's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ekamatra is ranked 26,095th in the world and 465th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 592.41693335292 Days.
