The Kingdom of Ernestria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Ernest VII Soter II with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.97 billion Ernestrians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bodendorf. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ernestrian economy, worth 77.1 trillion Konvertible Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,158 Konvertible Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold-plated handcuffs, a generation of children conceived in hell and born in strife is growing up inside government-run care villages, and the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ernestria's national animal is the talbot hound.

Ernestria is ranked 64,310th in the world and 13th in Western Atlantic for Most Influential, scoring 294 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
