The Failed States of ErvarŽa not of ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tel'rial Meradon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.927 billion ErvarŽans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Defense also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belduryn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient ErvarŽan economy, worth a remarkable 6,060 trillion ablis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 435,195 ablis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,130,598 per year while the poor average 19,486, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Cities are engulfed by smog, 90% of active duty ERAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, the Sequoiadendron giganteum stadiums are open 24/7, and seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC's national animal is the Sequoiadendron giganteum, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC is ranked 210,369th in the world and 32nd in Meihua for Longest Average Lifespans, with 19.65 Years.
