The Democratic Party of Ekamatra is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Deacon with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 30.499 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 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ekamatran economy, worth a remarkable 4,355 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 142,791 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Prematurely retired barristers twitch in anxiety when they talk about their courtroom experiences, translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Ekamatran justice, and families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up. 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 171,446th in the world and 6,424th in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 0.89 Obesity Rate.
