The Democratic Republic of Great Erawan is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 512 million Great Erawanians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gotham City. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Great Erawanian economy, worth 35.3 trillion bitcoins a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 68,913 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Erawan's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Erawan is ranked 56,357th in the world and 3rd in RIUVV for Most Developed, scoring 63.31 on the Human Development Index.
