The Yeeter of Erfton is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jason Special Penguin with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.912 billion Erftonians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguin Hills. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erftonian economy, worth 517 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,294 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'I'm Coming Out' has shot to the top of the nation's music charts, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and billions of dollars are spent to take high-quality photos of the Penguins Nebula. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erfton's national animal is the Penguins, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Faith.

Erfton is ranked 109,876th in the world and 4,107th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 575.15 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
