Regional Influence: Sprat


The Dominion of Ercil is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chief Minister Urien Houtman with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 12.177 billion Ercilians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zhia-Cia. The average income tax rate is 86.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ercilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,362 trillion Ingies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 111,924 Ingies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's a hole in the heart of every Ercilian city, it is impossible to get any work done as auditors swarm every inch of government factories and mines, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ercil's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ercil is ranked 129,905th in the world and 3,869th in Osiris for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.22 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
