The Commonwealth of Eriksville is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Koning Erik with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.659 billion Eriksvilleans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blankevoort City. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eriksvillean economy, worth a remarkable 1,118 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,017 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, former polygamists always seem to have a huge number of visiting cousins, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile. Crime is totally unknown. Eriksville's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eriksville is ranked 2,997th in the world and 85th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.72 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
