The United Kingdom of Eckman is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 931 million Eckmanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Donnmeyer. The average income tax rate is 25.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Eckmanian economy, worth 72.3 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 77,708 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The most common answers to where babies come from are "uh... ask your mother" and "um... ask your father", the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Eckman's national animal is the Cobra.

Eckman is ranked 219,006th in the world and 9,224th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 172.41 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
