LeaderEmpress Prazac XII


The Endless Empire of Ermarian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Prazac XII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 34.343 billion Ermarianese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ermarianese economy, worth a remarkable 5,175 trillion imperials a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,702 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 230,161st in the world and 9,404th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -15.75 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
