The Kingdom of Eragonaise is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 211 million Eragonains 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.6%.

The very strong Eragonaise economy, worth 16.7 trillion Eragonaise dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,159 Eragonaise dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 232,271 per year while the poor average 21,266, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', private law firms are unheard of, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, and untold millions of Eragonaise dollars are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Eragonaise's national animal is the Eragonaise Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eragonaise is ranked 84,441st in the world and 4,073rd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47 on the Rand Index.
