Erwo Stal

Population1.474 billion


AnimalBald Eagle

The United States of Erwo Stal is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Perseus with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.474 billion Erwo Stalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erwo Stalian economy, worth 223 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,947 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, visiting dignitaries often take advantage of strict reparation policies by stubbing their toes, the Erwo Stal Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Erwo Stal is ranked 92,853rd in the world and 5,034th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 37.02 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
