Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of ERNESTLAND is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mr Walton with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-working, devout population of 10.496 billion ERNESTLANDians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden City. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The ERNESTLANDian economy, worth 587 trillion waltons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 55,994 waltons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, many aides in Mr Walton's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ERNESTLAND's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

ERNESTLAND is ranked 58,395th in the world and 1,991st in Lazarus for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 43 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
