The Principality of Erlengrat is a huge, safe nation, ruled by King Henry III with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 882 million Principians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville de Erlengrat. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Erlengratian economy, worth 27.3 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 30,982 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and King Henry III has just been declared ruler of Erlengrat in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erlengrat's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Erlengrat is ranked 43,402nd in the world and 2,730th in Lazarus for Best Weather, with 117 meters of sunlight.
