The Republic of Effazio is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Chancellery with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.498 billion Effazians 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, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arysoma. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Effazian economy, worth a remarkable 3,472 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 187,742 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage. Crime is totally unknown. Effazio's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Effazio is ranked 272,945th in the world and 309th in Forest for Most Avoided, scoring 0.41 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
