The Federal Republic of Ehrgeizig is a huge, safe nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 496 million Ehrgeizians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hauptstadt Brody. The average income tax rate is 7.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ehrgeizigian economy, worth 60.8 trillion Tacoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 122,510 Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, many Ehrgeizians twitch nervously at the sight of nuns, the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning, and raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists. Crime is totally unknown. Ehrgeizig's national animal is the Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ehrgeizig is ranked 69,592nd in the world and 614th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,854.54 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
