The Kawaii Potoroo Habitats of Errinundera is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, rampant corporate plagiarism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 31.322 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 326 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 10,425 bolas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. 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 420th in the world and 6th in Forest for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 85.96 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
