The Freehold of The Land of the Ephyral is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Senate and Archons of Ephyra with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 10.569 billion Ephyral are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ephyra. The average income tax rate is 24.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ephyral economy, worth a remarkable 2,209 trillion Gold Honours a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,048 Gold Honours, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and heterosexuality is considered positive proof of fitness to parent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Land of the Ephyral's national animal is the Selian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Selian polytheism.

The Land of the Ephyral is ranked 19,100th in the world and 12th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Lowest Crime Rates, with 82.4 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
