The Grand Principality of Everantium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Prince Arkadios IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, triple-decker prams, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.305 billion Everantiumites 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Themapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Everantine economy, worth a remarkable 3,297 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 247,842 Drachmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 891,433 per year while the poor average 49,321, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

News headlines suggest that Grand Prince Arkadios IV has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, grandiose stage parents insist superyachts and private cinemas are children's basic needs, and student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Everantium's national animal is the Swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hellenistic Christianity.

Everantium is ranked 238,248th in the world and 6,952nd in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 5.53 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
