Erwo Stal

Population3.674 billion


AnimalBald Eagle

The United States of Erwo Stal is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Perseus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 3.674 billion Erwo Stalians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Erwo Stalian economy, worth 711 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,694 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer, people say chess victor Perseus can kill you with mind-bullets, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erwo Stal's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eagleism.

Erwo Stal is ranked 35,778th in the world and 1,674th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 213,948.22 Standard Monetary Units.
