The People's Republic of Ephros is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Congress of Soviets with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.541 billion Ephrosians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pergamon. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ephrosian economy, worth 437 trillion athlors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 172,284 athlors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The endangered saltwater humpback macaw is only seen in captivity programs, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay. Crime is totally unknown. Ephros's national animal is the macaw, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ephros is ranked 233,042nd in the world and 410th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -13.96 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
