The Free Land of Egregious Erudition is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Soulfire with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, digital currency, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.826 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, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egregion. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Egregious economy, worth 239 trillion $hillings a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 131,130 $hillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. 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 29,834th in the world and 42nd in Texas for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 68.5 Effective Tax Rate.
