The BlackLivesMatter of Erfton is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jason Special Penguin with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.646 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguin Hills. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erftonian economy, worth 494 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,683 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 192,505th in the world and 7,184th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.57 Obesity Rate.
