The Grand Principality of Everantium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Prince Arkadios IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.738 billion Everantiumites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Themapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Everantine economy, worth a remarkable 2,304 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 236,649 Drachmas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,211,621 per year while the poor average 25,378, a ratio of 47.7 to 1.

Armoured pyjamas are in fashion amongst the nation's nobility, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, war vets look after war animals, and perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Everantium's national animal is the Swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hellenistic Christianity.

Everantium is ranked 201,189th in the world and 7,545th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -14.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
