The Democratic Commonwealth of Ecclestia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the President of Ecclestia with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.3 billion Ecclestians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birmingham. The average income tax rate is 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ecclestian economy, worth a remarkable 4,940 trillion Ecclestian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 243,370 Ecclestian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Ecclestians's kindness, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Ecclestian pirates, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ecclestia's national animal is the Wallaby, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ecclestia is ranked 275,972nd in the world and 88th in Union of Christian Nations for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -27.68 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
