The 1980s-loving Nation of Eripolis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Konstantin Chernenko with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.242 billion Eripolisians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Moskva. The average income tax rate is 50.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Eripolisian economy, worth 349 trillion Eripolisian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,801 Eripolisian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, Konstantin Chernenko has just been declared ruler of Eripolis in an international press conference, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eripolis's national animal is the Tandy TRS-80, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eripolis is ranked 164,016th in the world and 3rd in 1980s America for Fattest Citizens, with 8.6 Obesity Rate.
