The Grand Duchy of England of Eirinne is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Duke Humphrey Walton with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.095 billion English are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southampton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.4%.

The powerhouse English economy, worth 747 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 92,373 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 279,311 per year while the poor average 23,782, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

The government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Eirinne's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Eirinne is ranked 119,292nd in the world and 18th in The Confederacy of Free Lands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 726.49 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
