The Federation of Erlyia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Eredith Rizeres with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.548 billion Erlyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azuros. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erlyian economy, worth 454 trillion cryskis a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,378 cryskis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, claims of miracles are met with calls to eradicate religion as superstitious nonsense, and 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erlyia's national animal is the raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Erlyia is ranked 27,286th in the world and 1,633rd in Lazarus for Most Corrupt Governments, with 33.93 Kickbacks Per Hour.
