The Failed States of ErvarŽa not of ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tel'rial Meradon with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.29 billion ErvarŽans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belduryn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient ErvarŽan economy, worth a remarkable 9,988 trillion ablis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 546,125 ablis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,928,583 per year while the poor average 24,453, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, the latest guided missile cruiser "Ship-1642" has received precisely zero column inches in the press, and retirement homes are filled with foreign war criminals. 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. ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC's national animal is the Sequoiadendron giganteum, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

ErVaReAn rEpUbLiC is ranked 317th in the world and 1st in Meihua for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 16,376 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
