The Empire of Eridue is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.074 billion Eridueans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eriduean economy, worth 423 trillion Karls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,892 Karls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, and vaccinations are mandatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Eridue's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eridue is ranked 143,411th in the world and 5,411th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -3.74 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
