The Yeeter of Erfton is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jason Special Penguin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.351 billion Erftonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguin Hills. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erftonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,002 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,328 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erfton's national animal is the Penguins, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Faith.

Erfton is ranked 2,789th in the world and 430th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 84 valid endorsements.
