The Technocratic Republic of Eflad is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dr Erwitto Fircenza with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.785 billion Eflads love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tehnograd. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Efladian economy, worth 530 trillion Ippons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 140,125 Ippons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eflad's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eflad is ranked 264,244th in the world and 12,353rd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -297.32 on the Hayek Index.
