The Empire of Eridue is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.338 billion Eridueans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 55.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Eriduean economy, worth 152 trillion Karls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 114,003 Karls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Emus are considered a delicacy, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, the government is hungry to spread communism beyond the nation's borders, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Eridue's national animal is the Emu, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
