The Elusive Elapid Environment of Errinundera is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 31.469 billion Errinundrians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is solely concerned with Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of First Creek Falls. The average income tax rate is 1.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Errinundrian economy, worth 327 trillion bolas 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 large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing and Information Technology. 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 10,409 bolas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tragedy of the commons is being tested nationwide but everyone says it's somebody else's problem, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Errinundera's national animal is the sniffer wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Errinundera is ranked 156,033rd in the world and 326th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -425.88 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
