The Republic of Effazio is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Rotmund with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.536 billion Effazians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. 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 2,749 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 176,973 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

"Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Crown treacle machine, Chancellor Rotmund's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime is totally unknown. Effazio's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Utilitarianism.

Effazio is ranked 842nd in the world and 32nd in Forest for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,716.66 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
