The Federal Republic of Erantan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, devout population of 1.033 billion Erantanians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blleran. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The Erantanian economy, worth 65.7 trillion baht a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 63,560 baht, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 179,417 per year while the poor average 18,024, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

The weather in Blleran is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Erantan's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Erantan is ranked 141,869th in the world and 7,453rd in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 10.05 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
