The Noble House of Eramuscas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Muad'Dib with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.991 billion Eramuscis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrakeen. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The all-consuming Eramuscasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,896 trillion spice melanges a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 105,428 spice melanges, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eramuscas's national animal is the sandworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eramuscas is ranked 14,921st in the world and 136th in Balder for Most Stationary, with 1,119.228971193 Days.
