The People's Republic of Ernestan is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 332 million Ernestanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tramoania. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Ernestanian economy, worth 8.56 trillion Rabas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 25,794 Rabas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Selling bombs to terrorists has become government policy, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and saying that someone looks a bit pale can be construed as hate speech. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ernestan's national animal is the Blue Footed Booby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ernestan is ranked 41,939th in the world and 442nd in The Communist Bloc for Longest Average Lifespans, with 64.46 Years.
