The Empire of The Era is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.298 billion Erans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Eran economy, worth 134 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 103,389 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's people have woken up to find themselves colonial masters of Brasilistan, centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Era's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Era is ranked 49,441st in the world and 2,672nd in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 65.65 on the Human Development Index.
