The Republic of Ehrenfest is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.849 billion Ehrenfestians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ehrenfestian economy, worth 349 trillion Dinars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,749 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', astronomers are flocking to Ehrenfest to take advantage of its clear night skies, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ehrenfest's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ehrenfest is ranked 207,687th in the world and 262nd in Wintreath for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 19.61 on the Hayek Index.
