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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New FOB Dubhlinn. The average income tax rate is 34.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Ericstannsi economy, worth 401 trillion Denarii a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. 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.
There's no such thing as bad publicity, foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, and political dissidents are cut off from essential services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ericstan NS's national animal is the Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
