The Kingdom of Ernstinium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Steve VIII with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.749 billion Ernstinis 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of T-Town. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ernstini economy, worth a remarkable 3,252 trillion Allied Stars a year, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 255,115 Allied Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, standard-issue infantry rifles now have carnations instead of bayonets, parties on cruise ships go off with a real bang, and travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ernstinium's national animal is the Blackbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ernstinium is ranked 786th in the world and 2nd in Krandor for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 19,638.32 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
