The Dictatorship of Eris Schiliter is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 183 million Eris Schiliterians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Eris Schiliterian economy, worth 5.74 trillion deniers 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Pizza Delivery. 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 31,385 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay, and organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eris Schiliter's national animal is the porpoise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Eris Schiliter is ranked 214,336th in the world and 125th in Chicken Nuggets for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
