The Blue boy of North Erfton is a massive, safe nation, ruled by John shamal with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.792 billion North Erftonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lé penguin lands. The average income tax rate is 41.5%.

The strong North Erftonian economy, worth 116 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,996 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, and the entire entry for North Erfton in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Erfton's national animal is the shamal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Religon of the Faith.

North Erfton is ranked 51,443rd in the world and 1,452nd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 57.22 on the Human Development Index.
