The Failed States of ErvarŽa not of ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tel'rial Meradon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.888 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 primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belduryn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient ErvarŽan economy, worth an astonishing 13,235 trillion ablis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 604,695 ablis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,349,908 per year while the poor average 27,075, a ratio of 160 to 1.

They say that Tel'rial Meradon's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, prime picnicking sites are being paved over in the name of progress, and fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget. 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 48th in the world and 1st in Meihua for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 58,109.7 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
