The United Nations of Eppur is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ismail Enes Kamburoglu with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.052 billion Eppurians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istanbul. The average income tax rate is 24.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Eppurian economy, worth 326 trillion Lire a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 159,112 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, posing for pictures is an integral part of military training, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime is totally unknown. Eppur's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eppur is ranked 46,236th in the world and 183rd in 10000 Islands for Most Armed, with 1.43 Weapons Per Person.
