The One-Winged Delegate-Elect of Erinor is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.033 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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Erinoran economy, worth 807 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 133,822 Sicaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. 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 149,100th in the world and 6,158th in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
