The Reverse Nation of Erbersia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Redael with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 3.17 billion Erbersians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bacawardo. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erbersian economy, worth 365 trillion Utopias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 115,297 Utopias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

People talk about their libido as if it were an STD, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, and disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erbersia's national animal is the Chihuahua, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reverse Psychology.

Erbersia is ranked 140,835th in the world and 37th in Universal Pact for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.62 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
