The Walled Cities of EretzIsrael is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Benjamin Satanyahu with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, conspicuous electricity pylons, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.595 billion EretzIsraelians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of יְרוּשָׁלַיִם. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient EretzIsraelian economy, worth an astonishing 13,641 trillion שקלs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 733,610 שקלs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,871,981 per year while the poor average 6,591, a ratio of 1,042 to 1.

Fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum, citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. EretzIsrael's national animal is the gazelle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Satanism.

EretzIsrael is ranked 88th in the world and 2nd in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 41,024.85 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
