The Effing of Efferalt is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Effer Alt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.602 billion Efferaltians 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.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Effertily. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Efferaltian economy, worth 110 trillion Effers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. Average income is 68,730 Effers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, and people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Efferalt's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unknown.

Efferalt is ranked 18,945th in the world and 591st in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.22 Years.
