The Etymology Shark of Erinor is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.885 billion Erinorans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciria. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Erinoran economy, worth 391 trillion Sicaras a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,736 Sicaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many marriages go virtually unconsummated, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, clumsy self-injury is a viable claim in modern compensation culture, and the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erinor's national animal is the Terror Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Revara.

Erinor is ranked 151,114th in the world and 6,122nd in the South Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -31.22 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
