The Republic of Eroclica is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 4.107 billion Eroclicans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 44.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Eroclican economy, worth 39.9 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,708 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association and every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eroclica's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eroclica is ranked 171,081st in the world and 259th in Spiritus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 3 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
