The Heavily Armed Republic of Erratica is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Witch-king of Angmar with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.114 billion Erraticai 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Morgul. The average income tax rate is 70.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Erratican economy, worth 556 trillion Shards of glass a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 263,167 Shards of glass, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Erratican beaches, and when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erratica's national animal is the Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Erratica is ranked 151,357th in the world and 2nd in Spaghetti for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 48.38 Workforce Participation Rate.
