The Commonwealth of Eriksville is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Koning Erik with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, otherworldly petting zoo, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.1 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blankevoort City. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eriksvillean economy, worth 909 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 149,151 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime is totally unknown. Eriksville's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eriksville is ranked 1,663rd in the world and 44th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 27,584.95 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
