The Republic of Ermica is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.501 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 prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Euylland. The average income tax rate is 32.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ermican economy, worth 430 trillion deus a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,638 deus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Towns are often run by puppets, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, auditors are gutting every governmental department, and money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy. 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 The Church of Godsinia.

Ermica is ranked 148,769th in the world and 191st in Thaecia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 280.28 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
