The Republic of Epiree is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Stevens with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.263 billion Epireeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tepa Bay. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Epireean economy, worth 679 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,478 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The children of Epiree are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, and distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water. Crime is totally unknown. Epiree's national animal is the peacock, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Epiree is ranked 229,728th in the world and 317th in Wintreath for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6.93 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
