The Democratic States of Erynia and Draconia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Lukas Daniels with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.176 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erynsitte. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Eryconian economy, worth 418 trillion Eryconian Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,902 Eryconian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, teenagers claim that morning paper rounds are performance art, immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, and AI citizens think only in binary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erynia and Draconia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Erynia and Draconia is ranked 8,746th in the world and 17th in The Social Liberal Union for Lowest Crime Rates, with 97.87 law-abiding acts per hour.
