The Union of Socialist Republics of Erisoria is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by General Secretary Gargi Thijmen with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-working population of 785 million Erisorians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erisoria City. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erisorian economy, worth 110 trillion Erisorian simhins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 140,196 Erisorian simhins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A new "thought police" branch is being developed, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, General Secretary Gargi Thijmen's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, and a degree in General Secretary Gargi Thijmen Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Erisoria's national animal is the seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Erisoria is ranked 21,624th in the world and 1,080th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 25.57 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
