The VRCC ArchBishop of Erasticanius is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Bishop Stoffa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.895 billion Erasticans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wesleynia. The average income tax rate is 85%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown. Erasticanius's national animal is the Lamb, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Virtual Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Euro.
