The Federal Empire of Erskiellander is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Qayser Theodor I von Altern with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.814 billion Erskiellians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verpanel. The average income tax rate is 79.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Erskiellanderian economy, worth 385 trillion Erskinar Krons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,039 Erskinar Krons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erskiellander's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Erskiellander is ranked 89,946th in the world and 27th in Universal Pact for Most Influential, scoring 69 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
