The Union of Socialist Republics of Erisoria is a huge, safe nation, ruled by General Secretary Gargi Thijmen with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The hard-working, democratic population of 757 million Erisorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaleendamen. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erisorian economy, worth 106 trillion Erisorian Simhins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 140,163 Erisorian Simhins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Erisoria, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Erisoria's national animal is the seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Erisoria is ranked 68,747th in the world and 2,912th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,294.9 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
