The Federal Republic of Ericstan NS is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ult Overlord Eric The Red II Earth 317C with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The quiet, industrious population of 6.058 billion Ericstannsis 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 is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds.

State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,251 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Ericstan NS's national animal is the Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
