The Free Land of Egregious Erudition is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Soulfire with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.405 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egregion. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Egregious economy, worth 369 trillion $hillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,497 $hillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, glamping Erudites won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime 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 113,004th in the world and 100th in Texas for Most Extreme, scoring 14.05 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
