The Democratic States of Ezmwalia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 347 million Ezmwalians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ezmwalian economy, worth 11.1 trillion nthwavas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Uranium Mining. Average income is 31,900 nthwavas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Movies depict muscle-bound women kicking down a titanium door to carry hysterical men to safety, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, every citizen sounds like a television news anchor, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ezmwalia's national animal is the Ezmwalian mountain wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ezmwalia is ranked 148,295th in the world and 314th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 52.95 on the Human Development Index.
