The Free Land of Egregious Erudition is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Soulfire with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.126 billion Erudites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egregion. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Egregious economy, worth 124 trillion $hillings a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 110,323 $hillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers, the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Egregious Erudition's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, government policy is dictated by a major religion, and libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Egregious Erudition's national animal is the Goozeberry, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Egregious Erudition is ranked 12,223rd in the world and 28th in Texas for Highest Drug Use, scoring 107 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
