The Effing of Efferalt is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Effer Alt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.128 billion Efferaltians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Effertily. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Efferaltian economy, worth 155 trillion Effers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. Average income is 73,175 Effers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only rebellious teens who want to look cool and dangerous drink milk in public, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Efferalt's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unknown.

Efferalt is ranked 102,549th in the world and 3,779th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 834.74 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
