The One-Winged Etymology Shark of Erinor is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.388 billion Erinorans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciria. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Erinoran economy, worth 856 trillion Sicaras a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,033 Sicaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, and urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erinor's national animal is the Terror Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Revara.

Erinor is ranked 16,732nd in the world and 437th in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.19 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
