The Federation of Erithian is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Council with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.875 billion Erithianics 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Erithianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,656 trillion Beakers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 240,911 Beakers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, clergy who start talking about politics are forced to take a holy vow of silence, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Erithian's national animal is the lab rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.

Erithian is ranked 154,744th in the world and 306th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 352.03 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
