The Emerald Forest of Eryndlynd is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Archdruid Eryx with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.895 billion Eryndians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eryndhar. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Eryndian economy, worth a remarkable 2,554 trillion eryndollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 234,465 eryndollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, and travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eryndlynd's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is druidry.

Eryndlynd is ranked 244,433rd in the world and 480th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -866.8 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
