The Dreary Moonlit Imagination of The Endless Eventide is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Ogliarchy of the Underworld with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.827 billion Eventidal Meanderers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Administration also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Subterranean Megacity of Afterglow. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Eventidal economy, worth 764 trillion Liquid Moonlight Starstreams a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 270,506 Liquid Moonlight Starstreams, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,489,146 per year while the poor average 3,007, a ratio of 827 to 1.

Schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, the barter economy has taken over as the Liquid Moonlight Starstream has become worthless, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Endless Eventide's national animal is the Illuminating Howling Star Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Truth Looming In The Twilight.

The Endless Eventide is ranked 98,450th in the world and 4,200th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,131.04 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
