The Republic of Epiaris22 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.377 billion Epiaris22ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 65.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Epiaris22ian economy, worth 933 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 173,518 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Warning signs caution Epiaris22ians where they may fall off 'the edge of the world', enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, and Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Epiaris22's national animal is the penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Epiaris22 is ranked 73,382nd in the world and 1,339th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
