The Kingdom of Ernstinium is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Steve VIII with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.735 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 2,166 trillion Allied Stars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 248,070 Allied Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Ernstinium, and the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers. 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 43,551st in the world and 1st in Krandor for Highest Drug Use, scoring 83 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
