The Matriarchy of Eirne is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.783 billion Eirneans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Spirituality, although Defense, Public Transport, and Administration are also considered important, while Industry and Environment receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.1%.

The Eirnean economy, worth 278 trillion sheela-na-girs a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 41,132 sheela-na-girs, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leader signs the laws but abides by none of them, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, refugees from other nations are flocking to Eirne's border, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Eirne's national animal is the rabbit, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Eirne is ranked 233,699th in the world and 112th in New Europe for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.76 bananas ingested per day.
