The Heavily Armed Republic of Erratica is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Witch-king of Angmar with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ubiquitous missile silos, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.835 billion Erraticai enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Morgul. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erratican economy, worth a remarkable 2,388 trillion Shards of glass a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 409,344 Shards of glass, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shouting contests are an important part of government job interviews, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, and prices for nearly everything reach all-time highs as business tax breaks are discontinued. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Erratica's national animal is the Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Erratica is ranked 182,568th in the world and 269th in The United Federations for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -6.32 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
