The Republic of Eurania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Vicar with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, vat-grown people, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.392 billion Euranians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Petrokavia. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Euranian economy, worth a remarkable 2,614 trillion Notes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 409,076 Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,503,694 per year while the poor average 78,694, a ratio of 19.1 to 1.

The nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, foreign leaders who don't applaud the Vicar's speeches are regarded as enemies of Eurania, and citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eurania's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Eurania is ranked 3,546th in the world and 21st in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 15,562.31 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
