Welcome Eckie-Ecola

We welcome The Egeden Embassy of Echie-Ecola (, as the 216th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.

The Egeden Embassy of Eckie-Ecola is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.362 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business individuals concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Defence and Commerce are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing industries.
It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Eckie-Ecola's national animal is the Swarmian Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Dabloon.
