Population7.252 billion


CurrencyEriadnian Dollar

The People's Republic of Eriadni is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.252 billion Eriadnians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Eriadnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,775 trillion Eriadnian Dollars 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 244,814 Eriadnian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Theatre audiences often need a telescope to see the stage, Leader's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed. Crime is totally unknown. Eriadni's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eriadni is ranked 1,101st in the world and 33rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Developed, scoring 98.26 on the Human Development Index.
