LeaderEmpress Prazac XII


The Endless Empire of Ermarian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Prazac XII with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 33.411 billion Ermarianese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dawn. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ermarianese economy, worth a remarkable 5,072 trillion imperials a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,818 imperials, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the comic book series 'Empress Prazac XII and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough. Crime is totally unknown. Ermarian's national animal is the pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is abolished.

Ermarian is ranked 206,548th in the world and 9,130th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -17.19 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
