The Dictatorship of Erathian Social State is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 621 million Erathians 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, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Griffonheart. The average income tax rate is 51.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Erathian economy, worth 71.1 trillion griffons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 114,412 griffons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Erathian Social State. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erathian Social State's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Erathian Social State is ranked 172,336th in the world and 2nd in The League of Sublime Nations for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.35 percentage of bribes refused.
