The Allied States of Erenonde is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 628 million Erenondeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarenham. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Erenondean economy, worth 53.6 trillion florins 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Average income is 85,317 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, and jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erenonde's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Erenonde is ranked 155,071st in the world and 1,228th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.05 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
