The McNuke Depot of Ermica is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jreg with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.872 billion Ermicans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Euylland. The average income tax rate is 55.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ermican economy, worth 334 trillion deus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,632 deus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned, high school bands practice by moonlight, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. Crime is totally unknown. Ermica's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anti-centrism.

Ermica is ranked 62,662nd in the world and 180th in Thaecia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,590.85 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
