The Kingdom of Europaterre is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Alexander with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.757 billion Europaterreans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kanopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Europaterrean economy, worth 261 trillion Eurodollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 148,891 Eurodollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 579,120 per year while the poor average 26,173, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

Government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that King Alexander is not a crook, the death glare has replaced the handshake as a national greeting, citizens who inform on their neighbors can trade government "loyalty points" for food and other prizes, and political cartoons depicting King Alexander's face on a Kangaroo's buttocks are selling like hotcakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Europaterre's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Europaterre is ranked 32,447th in the world and 33rd in Sonindia for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 787.03 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
