The One-Winged Etymology Shark of Erinor is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.28 billion Erinorans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciria. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Erinoran economy, worth a remarkable 1,354 trillion Sicaras a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,930 Sicaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Erinoran police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erinor's national animal is the Terror Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Revara.

Erinor is ranked 3,008th in the world and 93rd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.24 on the Human Development Index.
