The Emerald Forest of Eryndlynd is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Archdruid Eryx with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.483 billion Eryndians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eryndhar. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Eryndian economy, worth a remarkable 3,458 trillion eryndollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 238,804 eryndollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The horniness of the great-horned dragon is considered a national priority, prison visits increase substantially during election years, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime is totally unknown. Eryndlynd's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is druidry.

Eryndlynd is ranked 304,997th in the world and 355th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -879.73 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
