The Failed States of ErvarŽa not of ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tel'rial Meradon with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.188 billion ErvarŽans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belduryn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient ErvarŽan economy, worth a remarkable 6,322 trillion ablis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 445,623 ablis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,205,614 per year while the poor average 19,953, a ratio of 160 to 1.

The nation is Meihua's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, and woodcutter axes are cited as the most common cause of death amongst Sequoiadendron giganteums. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC's national animal is the Sequoiadendron giganteum, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC is ranked 9,482nd in the world and 2nd in Meihua for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,486.49 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
