The Senate and Freeholders of The Land of the Ephyral is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Archon Anomedes Gorgosios Lenaleos with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.214 billion Ephyrīhi 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, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ephyra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The very strong Ephyrīha economy, worth a remarkable 1,207 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. Average income is an impressive 194,299 Gold Honours, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 608,359 per year while the poor average 47,581, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and fathers are free to sell their daughters to whomever they choose. 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 Ephyral Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Ephyral paganism.

The Land of the Ephyral is ranked 174,073rd in the world and 54th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -33.02 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
