The Etymology Shark of Erinor is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.546 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 347 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 136,481 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 156,484th in the world and 6,668th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
