LeaderEmpress Prazac XII


The Endless Empire of Ermarian is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Prazac XII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 33.354 billion Ermarianese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dawn. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ermarianese economy, worth a remarkable 5,083 trillion imperials a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,407 imperials, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the comic book series 'Empress Prazac XII and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough. Crime is totally unknown. Ermarian's national animal is the pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is abolished.

Ermarian is ranked 40,958th in the world and 1,721st in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
