Regional Influence: Sprat

Location: The North Pacific



Population630 million



The Empire of Ekonia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 630 million Ekonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elkton. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ekonian economy, worth 47.4 trillion Untzes a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,274 Untzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and the government snoops on private internet connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekonia's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ekonia is ranked 221,046th in the world and 9,197th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 79.16 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
