The Republic of Epiaris50 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.831 billion Epiaris50ians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 77.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Epiaris50ian economy, worth 350 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 123,984 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

'Wolfnado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and warm coats are the hottest trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Epiaris50's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Epiaris50 is ranked 44,539th in the world and 852nd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 351 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
