The Error-Prone Scholars of Revert is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by ol' Jasper with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 36.712 billion Reverti hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Errortopolis. The average income tax rate is 5.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Reverti economy, worth a remarkable 3,105 trillion wooden pegs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 84,588 wooden pegs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Ol' Jasper panders to nontraditional families, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Errortopolis to enjoy their national art, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Revert's national animal is the Kafkaesque swallow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Undoism.

Revert is ranked 204,860th in the world and 7,478th in Osiris for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -7.51 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
