The McNuke Depot of Ermica is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jreg with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.131 billion Ermicans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Euylland. The average income tax rate is 61.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ermican economy, worth 352 trillion deus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,659 deus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

High school bands practice by moonlight, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ermica's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anti-centrism.

Ermica is ranked 189,969th in the world and 195th in Thaecia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -26.2 on the Hayek Index.
