The Dictatorship of Eris Schiliter is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 209 million Eris Schiliterians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Eris Schiliterian economy, worth 6.60 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 31,557 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets, and Eris Schiliterian soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eris Schiliter's national animal is the porpoise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Eris Schiliter is ranked 79,876th in the world and 1st in Chicken Nuggets for Most Secular, with 18.22 Atheism Rate.
