The Free Republic of Erinyes Alecto is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Madame President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.611 billion Erinyesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cloonlara. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Erinyesian economy, worth 512 trillion piledrivers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,246 piledrivers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, the wolfhound is a protected species, the government funds large training centres to turn wolfhounds into functioning members of society, and citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erinyes Alecto's national animal is the wolfhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is tree worship.
Erinyes Alecto is ranked 248th in 10000 Islands and 16,177th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 199 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
