The Kingdom of Efectivstan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 9.483 billion Efectivstanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turing. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Efectivstanian economy, worth 866 trillion booleans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,385 booleans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and the only places to see crocodiles now are at local zoos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Efectivstan's national animal is the crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Efectivstan is ranked 153,006th in the world and 6,410th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.59 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
