The United Socialist States of Endille is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 591 million Endilliques are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Endillishe economy, worth 19.3 trillion larres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 32,625 larres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates have hit a new low, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Endille's national animal is the frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Endille is ranked 34,622nd in the world and 51st in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.96 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
