The Free Republic of Erinyes Alecto is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Madame President with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.769 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, 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 769 trillion piledrivers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,743 piledrivers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, and motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts". 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.
