The Additional Example of Alpha Eridani II is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Achernar with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.374 billion Eridanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heliopolis. The average income tax rate is 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Eridanian economy, worth 31.8 trillion Federation Credits a year, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,136 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby President Achernar Pics" has made President Achernar's mom a celebrity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alpha Eridani II's national animal is the Non-Humanoid Entity, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Alpha Eridani II is ranked 137,698th in the world and 131st in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 292.15 Tourists Per Hour.
