LeaderEmpress Prazac XII


The Endless Empire of Ermarian is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Prazac XII with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 37.533 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dawn. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ermarianese economy, worth a remarkable 5,697 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 151,789 imperials, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Ermarian, 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. 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 114,083rd in the world and 4,852nd in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 64.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
