The Monarchy of Eurania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Directorate with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.153 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Euranian economy, worth a remarkable 1,706 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 331,097 Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,075,264 per year while the poor average 76,871, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", foreign lack of enthusiasm for Euranian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 180,648th in the world and 318th in The Western Isles for Safest, scoring 6.75 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
