The Holy Empire of Eschatosia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Telikos Terakhir with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.034 billion Eschatosians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maitregia. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Eschatosian economy, worth 136 trillion euros 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 131,596 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines, the hills are alive with the smell of burning flesh, every week is blindness awareness week, and people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eschatosia's national animal is the serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Teliki-Thriskeism.

Eschatosia is ranked 178,786th in the world and 7,856th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 15.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
