The Red and Black Union of Egaleca is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.689 billion Egalecans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egalopolis. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Egalecan economy, worth 373 trillion pies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 65,684 pies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and arrow loops, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Egaleca will pay them to stop, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Egaleca's national animal is the zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Egaleca is ranked 7,625th in the world and 200th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,472.14 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
