The One-Winged Etymology Shark of Erinor is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.367 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken 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 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Erinoran economy, worth 853 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 134,103 Sicaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. 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 11,455th in the world and 544th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 81.21 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
