The Federated Syndicates of Eriadni is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.595 billion Eriadnians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Eriadnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,303 trillion Eriadnian Dollars 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 Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 232,916 Eriadnian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal. Crime is totally unknown. Eriadni's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eriadni is ranked 175,464th in the world and 357th in The Communist Bloc for Most Pro-Market, scoring -71.11 on the Rand Index.
