“PERSONAL RESPONIBILTY AND DISIPLINE”

The Republic of ERNESTLAND is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mr Walton with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-working population of 8.514 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden City. The average income tax rate is 76%, 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.
ERNESTLAND's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ERNESTLAND's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the walton.
