CurrencyEryconian Dollar

The Democratic States of Erynia and Draconia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Lukas Daniels with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.924 billion Eryconians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erynsitte. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Eryconian economy, worth a remarkable 1,604 trillion Eryconian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 202,433 Eryconian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are renowned for their ability to make art pieces out of thin air, the nation is in perpetual campaign mode, residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, and any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced. Crime is totally unknown. Erynia and Draconia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Erynia and Draconia is ranked 244,044th in the world and 121st in The Social Liberal Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring -70.22 on the Rand Index.
