The Kingdom of Ernstinium is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Steve VIII with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.094 billion Ernstinis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of T-Town. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ernstini economy, worth a remarkable 2,816 trillion Allied Stars a year, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 253,899 Allied Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, postcards from Ernstini driving test centres are popular souvenirs, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ernstinium's national animal is the Blackbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ernstinium is ranked 170,240th in the world and 3rd in Krandor for Most Primitive, scoring -126.5 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
